AppAssure Error

We have a Windows 2008 server running in 32-bit that has been connected to AppAssure and being backed up for quite some time. All of the sudden, the backups started failing with the following error.

VSS error: The VSS writer 'SqlServerWriter' failed during the 'DoSnapshotSet' phase with error WriterErrorNonRetryable. The VSS writer state is FailedAtPostSnapshot

All of the basic troubleshooting has taken place. I have scoured the web looking for a fix, but the only thing I can find is a Hotfix that applies to 64-bit systems. Has anyone ran into this?

Below posts contains redirections to MS support links. Both support links are having downloads which contain both 32-bit and 64-bit files. Have you done troubleshooting/hotfix described in these?

This has been resolved. I was able to exclude the SQLSERVERWRITER and get the backups running again.
