Set Associate to Default Action Instead of Resolved for TFS Work Item Changeset Associations

In Team Foundation Server 2010, a new registry key was added to provide the ability to specify that “Associate” should be the default when associating work items to a changeset instead of the “Resolve” action.  This needs to be applied to each development machine that would like to change the default instead of editing the process template and work item type definitions.


All you have to do is set the ResolveAsDefaultCheckinAction value to False in this registry key:  HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\TeamFoundation\SourceControl\Behavior
