I have been searching the web and Microsoft's site to find a fix of a failed VVS. When the backup starts the it never gets past Initializing VVS.

Error codes  MSDTC   4437 and Com+   4689

Attempts to repair the machine using Microsoft's repair for COM+ has trashed it and I have reinstalled. Still no  working VVS. Any ideas?

What SQL are you running on the workstation, as we had an issue with SQLdumper that refers to symantec on our server when backing up doing the same thing. check this and let me know.

also if you cannot user VSC at all there is an addon you will need to install on XP machines in your network. : can be found at...

Running sql 2005 express on some machines but not an all that are having the problem. Not running sql at all on some machines.

Addon did not fix the problem.

No response for a long time. I assume that no one has a suggestion.
