Connect BIDS VS 2008 TO TFS 2010
To connect VS 2008 (BIDS for SSRS/SSIS) to TFS 2010, do the following:

Install VS 2008

Install VS 2008 Team Explorer

Install VS 2008 SP 1 (VS90sp1-KB945140-ENU.exe)

Install Patch "Visual Studio Team System 2008 Forward Compatibility Update for Team Foundation Server 2010 interoperability" (VS90SP1-KB974558-x86.exe)

To correctly access TFS 2010, you are required to enter using the following syntax -


If you get an error about entering http:// into the TFS connection, the Compat fix was not correctly installed.

To migrate a project from VSS 2005:
Close all solutions.
In options, change Source Control to Team Foundation Server
Copy your project on disk to a new folder
Delete all user setting files and vss source safe setting files from the folder or when you open the project it will change VS back to VSS.
Drop the project into the TFS folder and check it in.
Open the project from TFS and click 'permanently remove source binding' when it prompts.
It will then prompt to add the bindings back. Say "NO" or it may choose VSS 2005 bindings.
Once your project is open (disconnected), build and test it. If all is okay, use File->Source Control ->Change Source Control and refresh bindings so they appear. You could do a check out all / check in all as a test.
Then you're done!
