If you want to access source code in Team Foundation Server 2010 from either Visual Studio 2005 or Visual Studio 2008, you’ll need to install the appropriate Forward Compatibility Update.  And a prerequisite for that is the appropriate Service Pack 1.  So here are the links to the downloads:

Accessing TFS from Visual Studio 2005

June 23, 2011 Leave a comment

To access Team Foundation Server (TFS) from Visual Studio 2005, you need to install Visual Studio Team System 2005 Team Explorer (or Visual Studio 2005 Team Explorer for short).

The file (VSTFClient.img) is an image file so you’ll need to burn it to a CD or DVD.

To check that the software installed correctly look for a “Team Explorer” menu option on the View menu.

If you encounter “Error 1305 Error reading from file…” during the install, there’s a good chance the img file is corrupt and only partially downloaded.  Try downloading again. It should be 246 MB large.
