TFS SP1 - None of the products are installed?

    Question

  • Hi All,
    This thing has me pulling my hair our.  I have a 2 tier TFS 2008 installation.  This was originally built by a programmer but has now passed to operations for support.  We are looking to upgrade our existing TFS installation to SP1.

    To do this, I logged onto my app server and ran the SP 1 upgrade package, TFS90sp1-KB949786-ENU.exe.  It gave me an error that
     "None of the products that are addressed by this software update are installed on this computer. Click Cancel to exit setup." 

    When researching this, I saw that I was expected to upgrade VS2008 to SP1 first.  Now that I have done that, I am still getting the same error.  It doesn't even get to the point of creating a log file, all it does is extract the files and complain.  I see from the web client about that I am running:

    Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Team System Web Access

    Version 9.0.2889 on Microsoft Windows NT 5.2.3790 Service Pack 2 (Asp.Net 2.0.50727.1433) as XXX@XXXXX


    I cannot find any build/version tables but this is the same version as another, non upgraded version.  I have spent a few days searching the web to no avail.  Any pointers?

    Thanks

    I'm marking to closing this thread if you don't mind. If you meet new problems, please feel free to open a new thread.

     

    By the way, the latest TFS Installation Guide contains How to: Integrate the Installation of Team Foundation Server and Service Pack 1.

  • I dont think VS 2008 SP1 is a prerequisite for TFS SP1.
    Please double check you are trying TFS SP1 on the right box. For Team System Web Access, there is a separate SP1 available here

  • Thanks for the reply and the pointer to the web access update, I did'nt realize they were separate components.

    Is there any way for me to tell what version the TFS server is on? 

    My
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Team Foundation Server\Web Services\Services\bin\Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Server.dll
    is version 9.0.21022.8 created Friday, November 09, 2007, 9:58:41 AM

    That seems old to be an SP1 file.  I picked that file somewhat randomly but I don't see any newer files around that directory tree.

    I have 2 servers in my farm, the application server and the db.  I have been running this on the application server.

    I upgraded VS to SP1 based on the following snippet from the install instructions "
    Additionally, if you plan to install this service pack on a server that has a client for Team Foundation also installed on it, you must install SP1 for Visual Studio 2008 on that server before you install SP1 for Team Foundation Server. For more information, see “Installing Team Foundation Server and Service Pack 1” in the installation guide."

    If anybody has successfully installed this, can they send me the version of the file above? 

    Any other thoughts?

    Thanks

  • You can check installed versions at Add/Remove Programs(please check "show updates" to see version details of any updates/SP) or at the About window (Help->About Visual Studio).

     

    Please see if this thread has a solution for you if not already tried

  • Hi,
    I had seen that thread and while it has the correct error message, it doesn't seem to be quite the same issue.  Perhaps I have a misunderstanding about how closely the two are tied but that seems to only be dealing with the client side and my problem is more concerned about the server side.

    I checked add remove programs, I see the original TFS 2005 having SP1 but this server was upgraded to 2008 some time ago and I do not see 2008 having SP1.

    I have:
    Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Premier Partner Edition - ENU
     -
    Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Explorer - ENU Service Pack 1
    Microsoft Visual Studio 2005  Team Explorer - ENU
    - Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Explorer - ENU Service Pack 1
    Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server (services) - ENU
     -
    Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server (services) - ENU Service Pack 1
    Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Suite - ENU
     -
    Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Suite - ENU Service Pack 1
    Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Shell (integrated mode) - ENU
    Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Team Explorer - ENU
    Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Team Foundation Server - ENU
    Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Team Foundation Server Build - ENU
    Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Team Foundation Sharepoint Extensions - ENU
    Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Team System Web Access

    As I mentioned, we have recently taken over control of this machine.  Is it expected to still have the 2005 installations after an upgrade to 2008?

    I launched the Client (VS w/ just Team Explorer) and went to 'About' as you suggested.  I have copied the output below.  As I mentioned, the VS 2008 SP1 was successful but the TFS 2008 SP1 gives the "nothing to upgrade" error.

    What are my options here?  Do i need to just spin up another server and cut my losses?  I would hate to go through that but I don't really know what to check.

    Thanks for your time.

  • Though I dont find any difference in the patch level of your VS 2008 installation, I would suggest you to double check the same. All the editions must be of SP 1. You can also have a look at VS 2008 SP1 log file and ensure it has no issues. Re-installation of VS 2008 SP1 also can be a good try. Also ensure that you do not have any other installation preventing TFS SP1 installation as explained here.

     

    Aah..sometime magic happens - did you reboot your server after VS 2008 SP1 updation?

     

    Also, are you sure no log file is generated when TFS 2008 SP1 fails to install?

    Wednesday, October 08, 2008 10:46 AM
  • Thanks for your response.

    When I tried to run the sp.exe /v*logfile, nothing was created.  Is there somewhere else I can look for a logfile?

    I have rebooted now, (I hadn't) but no go. 

    I have been through that documentation.  I was originally (for the VS2008 SP1) having the problem where .NET 2.0a would not uninstall but I fixed that by completely uninstall .net 3.5, 3 and 2 and reinstalling them.

    Is there database schema changes in this SP?  IE, if I were to create another TFS server, could I run it against the same DB while I am getting it up and tested?

    Thanks
    ej

  •   

    TFS 2008 SP1 has database schema changes. Have you logged in the TFS server with local admin right? If you already did that, could you please run Best Practice Analyzer from TFS 2008 Power Tool to see if some clue can be found?

  • Thanks Bill, I missed the alert on Friday. 

    I have been struggling to even remove TFS.  I still have 2005 version in there that will not remove with an error around pidgen.dll.  I have finally managed to uninstall TFS 2008.  I reinstalled successfully but the upgrade wouldn't work until I registered the installation.  Once I did that when I run the SP1, it now sees what it needs to upgrade.  Problem is, when I continue, it ask for VS_setup.msi.  ok, no problem, navigate to the install location and select the MSI.  problem is, it says it is a different build number and fails on me.  Wow, this is killing me...

    I have managed to put together a second server on standby.  I haven't looked into getting the standby server to be primary.  Is there anyway to just rename the standby into place so I don't have to get all clients to repoint?

    I ran the best practice analyser.  Nothing jumps out but I am not sure what to look for.  I will be banging more on this tomorrow and will post my findings.

    thx

  • The steps for active standby server is described in How to: Activate a Fail-Over Application-Tier Server.

     

    I'm not quite sure why this error message is displayed. Since the TFS is already reinstalled, and from the description, the main TFS is down. I'd like to suggest you to make a RTM+SP1 integrated installation media as described in Adbelhamid's blog and use it to install TFS. This should be the quickest way now to get the main TFS to work. Please let me know if you meet any problems.

  • How to deal with my problem - I migrated to TFS 2008 from TFS 2005 and now want install TFS 2008 SP1. Slipstreaming not works in this case and I'm getting exactly same error as topic.

    Is it possible upgrade to SP1 ?
