Cannot connect TC to Team Foundation Service / TFSPreview.com

Teamcity 7.1.3 on a Windows 7 64 bit build machine

The box is currently happily building VS2008 projects stored in a TFS2005 server, but am trying out VS2012 projects stored in TFSPreview / TF Service, and I cannot get past setting up the VCS root.

On clicking test Connection, I get the following..

Test connection failed in VS2012 Test against TFSPreview :: VS2012 - Build Configuration for Hello Haven. TFS failed. ExitCode: 1

On running the installer specified in the link (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=166482) however, I get the following message:
The upgrade patch cannot be installed by the windows installer service because the program to be upgraded may be missing, or the upgrade patch may update a different version of the program. Verify that the program to be upgraded exists on your computer and that you have the correct upgrade patch.

I'm therefore stuck. :(
Has anyone connected TC 7.1 to Team Foundation Service / TFSPreview.com, and if so how can I get past this error?

Many thanks! :)
ps *Love* TeamCity

p.s. I've also installed Team Foundation Explorer from the VS2005 TFS tfc directory with the aim of enabling me to run the original installer in the link in the error.. but still the same error.
