DDCONV produces a Ddcerr.log file that contains only "DDCONV Initializing" when upgrading a Visual SourceSafe 4.x installation.
DDCONV does not have to go through the usual conversion routines for a database that is in 4.x format, because the structure of the database files did not change from versions 4.x to 5.x. The only difference was the addition of a 128 byte unique identifier in the Um.dat file. This identifier is not added during the DDCONV session.
No action is required. The database should function normally under Visual SourceSafe version 5.0.
This behavior is by design.
The normal output in the Ddcerr.log file after a successful conversion of a non-version 4.x database is as follows:
DDCONV initializing Creating subfolders Moving files Creating rights DB Building project list Creating names DB Converting log files Adding project rights Converting users DDCONV finished
