SQL Backup Agent startup error. VDI library not registered.

Postby spraguetr » Mon May 08, 2006 4:38 pm

I get this error message in Event viewer upon install of version 4.1.0.207

Event ID for the message in Event viewer is 660

Not sure exactly what to do to fix this. I need to have this fixed prior to Thursday 5/11/2006 as I have to travel to the site and get SQL backups scheduled for this customer.

Can you please advise? Thanks.

In your SQL Server COM folder, there is a file named sqlvdi.dll. This is the backup library that SQL Backup uses. Try registering this dll manually e.g.

regsvr32 "C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft SQL Server\\80\\COM\\sqlvdi.dll"

This COM library might sometimes get unregistered when you install one instance of SQL Server, then install another instance, and later uninstall the later instance.
