How to delete a project in Team Foundation Service (

As of today there still isn't a UI based option to remove a project in Team Foundation Service.

So how do we do it?

Turns out to be much simpler than I had mentally prepared myself for.

Open Administrator Command Prompt (win+x a), change directory to:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE

The run the following command substituting the values inside the [ ] brackets.

TFSDeleteProject.exe /collection:"https://[name]" "[project name]"

You should then see a warning, press y to delete the project. Done.


I have VS2012 installed, and VS is already joined to my Team Foundation Service.
