How to fix annoying connection error to TFS server 2010 RC

This issue has popped up for some after having upgraded from Team System Beta 2 to RC.  You have remembered to uninstall everything (as Jakob points out here: but you still get the following error box:


saying Could not load type ‘Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Client.TeamFoundationServerBase’ from assembly ‘Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Client, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a’.

At the same time, you see Power Tools functions are still there in Visual Studio, but no Power Tool appears in the Add/Remove programs.  This is some freak happening when uninstalling the beta Power Tools.

The solution, as first suggested and tried by Mathias Olausson, is to simply install the beta 2 Power Tools again, and uninstall them again. That seems to solve the problem.
