Symantec Backupexec 12.0 compatibility issues with Server 2008 R2 Standard

Hi
I have Backupexec 12.0 running on Server 2003 Standard 32 bit.   I added a member server running Server 2008 R2 Standard which is doing file services.  I need to backup the files on the 2008 box.

I tried running RAWSX64 setup.exe and get "This program is blocked due to compatibility issues".  I click "Check for solutions online" and "No solutions found for BackupExec Symantec".

What can I do to get the 2008 server backed up?  If I need to buy an updated version of Remote Agent, let me know that too.  I'd hate to have to buy a whole new version of BackupExec, but let me know what you think.  Thanks.
