TF30335 : Could not connect to the TFS2010 server through Visual Studio 2008 client

First Check whether you have the VSTS 2008 Sp1 installed, if not ,install it first and then make some changes in the registry as given below

Edit registry value: HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/VisualStudio/9.0/TeamFoundation/Servers.

Add a new String Value in there and make the name of it the name that you want to call your server connection. Make the Value ““. Replace the with the ipaddress or name of your server. Replace the tfs with the server’s instance(default is tfs). Replace the DefaultCollection with whatever your collection is named (default is DefaultCollection).
