You may experience issues when connecting to TFS 2010 from Team Explorer 2008. Some of the issues are around the new structure of TFS 2010 using collections when TFS 2008 was structures using projects. Team Explorer was not designed to specify the collection. You will need to do that directly in the registry. You will also experience authentication issues. If you experience TF31002, TF30335, and TF31001, follow these instructions:To connect to TFS 2010 from Team Explorer 2008, you we need to do the following:

1) Install VS2008 Team Explorer component

2) Use Tool->Options->Source Control to swith to “Visual Studio Team Foundation Server”

3) Re-install (if necessary) VS2008 SP1 AFTER you have added the Team Explorer component

4) Install VS2008 SP1 ‘forward compatibility’ patch – VS90SP1-KB974558-x86.exe – AFTER VS2008 SP1

5) Set the server URL via the registry by going to [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0\TeamFoundation\Servers] add string: “<TFS 2010 server name>”=”http(s)://<TFS 2010 URL>:<Port>/<Collection Name>”
