Method not found: Error

Method not found: System.String Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.

I am currently working through a SharePoint 2003 upgrade to MOSS 2007 using In-Place Upgrade. I was running the Prescan tool as part of the migration and got the following error message.

The command ran

Prescan.exe /c presupgradescanconfig.xml /all

The Error Message

2/05/2007 11:12:51 Error: Exception while looping through virtual servers.

This is due to not having service packs installed in my existing SharePoint Portal Server 2003 environments.

Windows SharePoint Services Service Pack 2 (SP2)

I am writting fro PAXUS IT Recruitment in Adelaide, and im hoping you can either put me in contact with or know how to contact the admin for the Sharepoint users group. We are desperatly trying to find developers in South Aust, for a major client.
Any leads/ info you can give will attract a spotters fee.

Please feel free to email me @

Thanks in advance

Thanks a lot. Your solution was a life saver. I new I need SP1 but not the SP2 and this did the difference.
