I'm not sure if this is the proper topic location but I am having trouble installing Visual SourceSafe 2005 on my client PC. The server install is fine and I am accessing it from other PC's.

However, when I try to install it on my Windows XP Pro x64 bit laptop the install hangs as soon as I press "Next" from the first screen. No error message. No crash. Just hangs forever.

Is there a problem installing VSS 2005 client on a x64 box? If so, is there a work-around?

Thanks in advance.
