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've tried re-registering pvcalendar.ocx and restarted all the services (and server) as per http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/302050.htm

I can create new jobs without an error.

Any suggestions?

Same problem here, except running 32bit Server 2003.
Upgrading to BE 12.5 might resolve the issue as per: http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/310741.htm

Otherwise try registering PVCALENDAR.OCX as per: http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/302050.htm

Thanks Zippy

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

I've tried the PVCALENDAR.OCX a couple of times to no avail.

Thanks
