Check your default settings.
The default option when double clicking a file in Vault is "View" which should not check out the file.  It would appear that your installation has the default set to edit, which would require a check out.
So, if it is being checked out, then it would appear the default option has been changed ... or you might be running an older version; in which case you might want to upgrade.

No, it looks like "view" is the setting currently selected.

Yeah, it looks like right-clicking the file in the Visual Studio IDE and selecting "View Code" is the way to do it.
