You may see the below error while trying to publish from MS Project Client, in an environment where Enterprise Project server is configured to work with TFS.

It is recommended that you save your work and restart the application.'

Everything works well, when we use Project Web access and try and publish.

Cause:

TFS Add-in which kicks in when we use MS Project Client on a box where Visual studio Team explorer is also installed, This causes a sync /publish conflict as it also side by side trying to update. Hence the above error. Its not recommended to use MS Project client to publish, but preferred way of doing is web access.

Resolution:

We have removed the TFS add-in that got installed due to the Visual studio Team explorer presence in the machine where MS Project was installed. This helped resolve the main error.

Cheers!
