How to delete Visual studio project from

Today I wanted to remove some of my experimental projects hosted in But I have never tried to delete project from Team Foundation Server at all. SO I started to search and found that you have to use Cisula Studio Command Prompt in ordr to delete project on TFS.

So here are steps how you can easily delete project form

Before you run the command you need to provide the following information similar I have listed here:

My tfs preview account is:

The project I want to delete is: CrossNumber

Database which contains my project is: DefaultCollection

These informationa are required to delete project, and also before you start deletion you must be logged to your subscription.

1. Open Visual Studio Command Prompt

2. Type the following command: TFSDeleteProject /force /collection: CrossNumber

3. Confirm deletion by typing “Y

4. The result in Command prompt will be similar like on the picture:

5. Go to your project web site to be sure the project is terminated.
