I have several servers running third party applications that apparently do a partial Microsoft SQL install.  We use a locally developed backup program.  The backup program uses a persistant volume shadow copy to back up the and then verify the data.  By the time the verify runs, the .mdf files have changed and the verify fails.  

I think the problem is that SQL Writer is not running.  A Guide for SQL Server Backup Application Vendors says to start the service, but the service is not listed.

How can I get the correct SQL Writer installed and running?

OK, per my previous post, the service doesn't exist when I run services.msc, so I can't start it.  The configuration manager likewise isn't loaded.

The problem stems from the 3rd party applicaitons that (apparently) load an abreviated version of SQL Server.

Does this link help? Perhaps if this is an old verison of SQL (2000 and before), it might be called MSDE Writer.

All the sites say it is installed automatically. What OS is it on?
