Backing up SQL using Commvault

OK. MSDE SQL 2000 DB's exist on a Windows 2003 server 64bit.

SQL 2005 64Bit Studio is installed, the only reason I can see for this being installed it to view the MSDE DB's.

When trying to install Commvault agents on this server, the file system installs without issue, but the CV installer doesnt recognize that SQL is installed on the server and hence doesnt give any option to install the SQL agent.

We have ensured that multi instancing is enabled and the appropriate reg keys have been added (to enable a 32bit Idata agent to be installed on this 64Bit server).

We still  have no joy. THe Commvault installer states "The 64-bit version of this software is already installed. Please use the correct CD to add additional platforms"

This doesnt make sense as we are using the right CD etc. The commvault version is 7.0 SP5 (soon to be upgraded to version8.0).

Any ideas why commvault cant see that there are any SQL DB's on the server?
