TFS error TF30172

So I'm getting error TF30172 when I'm connecting to a team project on my TFS server. This is annoying, because I had created the existing team projects a different way, and now I'm trying to add them from Visual Studio 2010.

Unfortunately, there is no fix or change that will ever make it such that VS 2010 will be able to create a team project on a TFS 2012 server. The compat patch that you are referencing addresses a lot of things to make working with TFS 2012 from VS 2010 work well, but creating a team project is not one. You will have to use VS 2012 (or the standalone Team Explorer 2012) to create a team project.
Here's the KB article about a related patch:
I first thought about installing this:
Visual Studio 2010 SP1 Team Foundation Server 2012 Compatibility GDR
And then I thought - maybe this?
Team Explorer for Microsoft Visual Studio 2012
But ultimately? I settled for a two-part system. I manage my team projects through VS 2012's installed tools, and develop using VS 2010; this lets me do all my check ins and outs there.
