Do you mean that you have the SS database on a server, or you have a copy
of your project files on the server? Create a new Standard EXE project
with no code and is not in SS and try and upgrade it.

Tried something almost as trivial: Had a VB6 program
which did a file conversion. Flat file in, flat file
out. No forms, and no controls. Even that failed.
And NO, the existing project is not on a network share,
although it was defined to Source Safe under VB6 with the
SS version stored on a network server.
