The SelectionMode.One on a Checked List Box DOES NOT WORK! I've read the MSDN Instructions, and it does nothing. You can still select as many check boxes as you want ..anyone have a workaround for this?

SelectoinMode is something else. In a checked list box you can CHECK the items and also SELECT the items. The SelectionMode says that only one item can be selected, but multiple can be checked.

You can use the ItemCheck event to manually disable multiple checks. The event is described here:

Here is code that solves your problem:

private void checkedListBox1_ItemCheck(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.ItemCheckEventArgs e)
{
   SelectionMode mode = checkedListBox1.SelectionMode;
  if(mode == SelectionMode.One)
 {
    //uncheck all other items
    foreach(int i in checkedListBox1.CheckedIndices)
   {
      if(i!=e.Index)
      {
                checkedListBox1.SetItemCheckState(i,CheckState.Unchecked);            
      }
   }
}
                        
            }

If you want only one item to be checked, I suggest you to use radio buttons..
