Hi Chris,
See what happens if you just set the Interpreter Path explicitly in the 
project properties page.
That's all I've been doing.
In Solution Explorer, right click the project file and select 
"Properties" to open the properties page.
Set the "Interpreter Path" field to the actual path of your ipy.exe or 
E.g., mine is set to  "c:/IronPython 2.7/ipy.exe", without quotes.  (I 
don't like using "Program Files..." folders - ACL issues.)

Also, it sounds you are still using the "old" tools. (Not that it 
matters in this case, but if you have haven't switched to the "new" 
tools yet, I highly recommend it.)
Caveat: You WILL have to uninstall IronPython 2.7 and re-install it 
WITHOUT the bundled tools, and THEN install the new tools. They cannot 
be installed sxs. But I think the effort is well worth it.
And there is a really good walkthrough for it.
(In the new tools, you also have Tools>Options>Python Tools with several 
settings tabs for more options.)

I just finished converting my IPyScratchPad app (gen-purpose utility UI) 
to WPF from WinForms and switched to the new tools mid-stream, just for 
extra fun.
But I've had no trouble with it.

BTW, did I mention the new tools ARE GREAT!. Thanks, y'all.
