I'm trying to connect my Microsoft Project 2010 to a team foundation server in order to create a project connected to my server in order to edit tasks and so on...

Well, in the ribbon top bar, I click the Team Tab and then the Choose Team Project button...

It makes me choose the tfs instance and the project collection but when I submit my request clicking on Ok this error message appears:

TF82019: The mapping file contains unrecognized XML.

And the procedure is aborted. Can anybody tell me what to do? In Internet there is not much about this...

Hard to say where you might be failing as there are a few setps that need to happen to get this all to work. I've only done it once. I used the documentation here:

Did you do all the command line stuff to map fields in PS to to fields in TFS? It sounds like something has gone afoul in the mappings?

Good luck!
