I have a server currently running Backup Exec ver. 10d.  I am able to backup Windows XP workstations but I cannot get it to back up a Windows 7 Pro workstation.

My server is running Win Server 2003 R2.  All workstations in question are Windows 7 Pro on a domain network.

Thanks for any suggestions!

BEWS 10d is not compatible with Windows 7.
Please upgrade to the latest version.

unfortunately 10d is too far back for a simple upgrade.  You'd basically have to buy new.  You may want to look into another method of backup if money is a factor.
