A lot of the new stuff doesn't run on NT 4 anymore since it is EOL.

Is this a server or WS version?

BackupAssist ought to be OK on NT4 since it seems to be just a better GUI for the native ntbackup APIs. You can't upgrade NTbackup to Backup Exec even though it is a cut-down version of it since you didn't buy ntbackup as a product so Arcada/Seagate/Veritas/Symantec didn't charge you directly for it.
