tfs80070 Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am trying to get a client version of MS Project 2007 to connect with TFS 2015.  It sort of worked before (at least I could connect to TFS) but I kept getting the error tfs80070 when I tried to Get Work Items.  Otherwise, I could connect and sync between Project and TFS.  I recently upgraded to Visual Studio 2015 and now I cannot even connect to the TFS instance.  I always get the tfs80070 error.  I have tried to create a Project config file (winproj.exe.config) with the contents below but that does not even drop a file in the temp directory.  I've tried uninstall and reinstalling both Project and my local instance of TFS but that does not help either.  Have tried repairing Tools for Office Runtime but that does not help either.  I'm rather frustrated that these are all Microsoft tools and they won't even work together consistently.  Any ideas on how in the world to fix this? 

    Regards -
