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?

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.
