I'm running Backup Exec 12.0 Rev 1364. Server 2003 Standard x64.

If I open the properties of an existing job and click submit or cancel I receive the following error:

External Component has thrown an exception.
Stack Trace:
at BackupExec.UI.BEDlgs.JobListShowProperties(Guid guid)
at BackupExec.UI.Data.JobInst.OnProperties(Command command)

I can create new jobs without an error.

Any suggestions?

    I'll look into upgrading to 12.5. Wish it was part of Live update!
