I Does this paper rule out the Transactional Interpretation?

    They claimed to have shown that non local causaulity models of QM do not work. But does that include the Transactional interpretation, which is non local and retrocausal?

    No, this does not rule out TI. It rules out certain kinds of hidden variables models. TI does not have any hidden variables.
    So if anything, this strengthens the case for TI.

    No.

    It' still a valid interpretation.

    Like a lot of these papers claiming to rule this or that out, or show things like the violation of the uncertainty principle, it involves misunderstandings.

    Thanks
