How To Delete a Project from Team Foundation Server

I came across this one today while working on a new set up of TFS 2015. I created a Team Porject as a test and found that it could not be deleted. So we stumbled across an alternative way of deleting the project without having to sign into the actual application server.


Run this from admin command prompt where your Visual Studio is install:

  1. Windows 10 VS 2015 Pro path:
    1. C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\IDE\
  2. Command
    1. TfsDeleteProject.exe /force /collection:http://TFSServerName:PORT/tfs ProjectNameToBeDeleted
  3. Then Enter Y  at the prompt to confirm the project deletion.
