I´m trying to install the Visual Source Safe 2005 on a fresh machine running windows xp sp2. When I try do install I receive the following message:

The upgrade patch cannot be installed by the windows installer service because the program to be upgraded may be missing, or the upgrade patch may update a different version of the program. Verify that the program to be upgraded exists on your computer and that you have the correct upgrade patch.

On the machine are installed the following products:

- Visual Studio 2003
- Visual Studio 2008
- MSDE 2000
- Office 2003

Anyone can help me ?

    May be VSS 2005 needs framework 2.0 which is not on ur computer. Also check that u have windows installer 3.1 installed on ur computer. Go to the VSS 2005 site and see the requirement for installing VSS 2005.
