SBS 2003 SQL Server VSS Writer won't start

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.
