I have recently had to run a repair on a Windows 2008 R2 server that was hosting VMs and Backup Exec 2010, the upgrade in place worked for the Hyper-V host well but I cannot get Backup Exec to start because the SQL server dependency will not start, it returns an error 1067 from the service. I tried running the instance direct from the command line and this is the error I receive:

SQL Server could not find the specified named instance (BKUPEXEC) - error2please specify the name of an existing instance on the invocation of sqlserver.exe.

If you believe your installation is corrupt or has been tampered with, uninstall then re-run setup to correct this problem.

The perf-BKUPEXECsqlctr.ini exists. I have tried reinstalling SQL server - no help, and I cannot uninstall it using the control panel. Is there any script I could run to get this fixed?

Did you install it as a named instance?

When I try to install a new instance I get this:

SQL Server Setup could not connect to the database service for server configuration. The error was: [Microsoft][SQL Native Client]Encryption not supported on the client. Refer to server error logs and setup logs for more information. For details on how to view setup logs, see "How to View Setup Log Files" in SQL Server Books Online.

I may try to install the BE DB on another server and link it with the utility.

I installed a new instance using SQL Server 2008 to get it to work.
