Vssadmin commands not working under Vista 64
Posted on 2009-04-03
I was trying to manage the volume shadow copy service through the command prompt, using the Vssadmin commands such as "Vssadmin list volumes" and so on. Trouble is, I get errors with any Vssadmin command I use.
I'm obviously typing them in administrator mode, but here's what I get (translated from italian):
"vssadmin list shadowstorage
Error: Unexpected failure: Catastrophic failure"
In the event viewer, here's what I get:
"(Event ID 33)
Volume Shadow Copy Service error: The VSS management class is not registered. This may be due to a setup failure or as a result of an application's installer or uninstaller.
(Event ID 8193)
Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error calling routine CoCreateInstance. hr = 0x80040154."
Is there any way to fix this? Restoration points are set to happen on C: and do work. But I can't make this command lines work.
