Since upgrading Backup Exec from version 10 to version 12.5 on SBS 2003 Standard, the SQL Server VSS Writer won't start.  It's stuck "starting".
Is there a way to correct or uninstall and reinstall VSS Writer?
Thanks.

SQL Server VSS writer is not available as a separate download. Instead you will need to obtain from original source media or SQL Server SP. To extract the package, run the following command-line: path-to-exe-file.exe /X:c:\temp\kb.

 

Now search for the file sqlwriter.msi or sqlwriter_x64.msi and run the one approriate for your system.
