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.

Try selecting a file and then selecting View from the menu and see if it will open it without checking it out.
If this does not work either then either there is a problem on the server side and any request for a file is being checked out or there is a problem with the client app that you are using and the view option is not working right, as this is supposed to open the file for viewing without actually checking it out.

if this is the case, try uninstalling the app.
I would recommend that you delete any directory structures associated with the app (i.e. the application directory in Program Files) and then check the registry and remove the registry value under HKLM/Software and then reinstall the package.

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