Error Connecting TFS2010 Server using VS 2008


You are using different versions of Team Foundation Server and I think this is the reason for having the problem. But before this, check first if you enter every credentials correctly like for example the server’s address, the port number, the password, and others. You should also check if the server on the other end is not offline.

If there’s no problem with the program’s configuration, try installing only one version of Team Foundation Server. Maybe these versions of Team Foundation Server conflicts with one another and prevents the connection from completing. Decide on which version of Team Foundation Server you really wish to install. If you decide to install Team Foundation Server 2010, then don’t install the 2008 version and vice versa. If you install the 2008 version, don’t install the 2010 version.
