Connecting to TFS 2010 using Team Explorer 2008 / Visual Studio 2008

This has been quite a common scenario especially around Business Intelligence projects which are still only supported out of Visual Studio 2008. So you often want these BI projects to connect to TFS 2010, which could be your centralized version control among others. Below are the steps for the same, assuming you have already installed Visual Studio 2008:

a) Install Team Explorer 2008

b) Install VS.NET 2008 SP1

c) Install forward compatible Update for Team Explorer 2008 to make it work with TFS 2010

d) Go to your VS.NET 2008 Team Explorer and adding a server by specifying full URL as shown below

Hope that helps!!!
