FIX: Upgrading VJ++ 6.0 with SP2 Changes PID to All Zeroes


When upgrading Visual J++ 6.0 with Service Pack 2, the Product ID (PID) changes to all zeros.


The only solution currently available to enable you to retain the PID is to remove Visual J++ 6.0 and then reinstall it. Write down the PID when instructed to do so. After you install the application, reinstall Service Pack 2.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a bug in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.

This bug was corrected in Visual Studio 6.0 Service Pack 3.
