Connecting to TFS 2010 from Studio 2008

Codeplex recently updated the server hosting the IoC project to TFS10.  Since we still have to use Studio 2008 for device development, I had to do some client changes for bindings to get to the server.  TFS 2010 added the concept of a “Team Project Collection”, which Codeplex is using – but Studio 2008’s Team Explorer dialog has no provision for it.  It took me a while with a search engine to figure out how to actually attach – basically you have to manually type the full path into the connection dialog in Team Explorer like so:


http://<serverName&gt;:<port>/<vdir>/<collectionName>


So for the new TFS10 on Codeplex, it looks like this:
