Hi there,

 I have spoken to Symantec, reinstalled backup exec from scratch and updated all the patches.

I have event reinstalled all instances of .NET including the integrated .NET 3.5 which is built in with Windows Server 2008. However despite all this, I am still unable to clear these errors? Can anyone else recommend anything else that can help?

The server is running on Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard. Backup exec 2010 R3 with all the latest updates installed.

Kind regards

These don't actually look like errors with the .NET framework, so I don't think installing that would fix anything. It looks like it's likely a permissions error with that folder. If you check the NTFS permissions on the folder "C:\ProgramData\Symantec\CRF\", do you see the "LDC\supbackup" allowed to read or write to the folder? If not, can you add it so it can write and see if the error persists? That seems like the most likely cause.

If the folder permissions are incorrect, the application install may or may not correct that, depending on the issue. Since the "LDC\supbackup" account runs the service, it should have full control of the folder that contains the application settings and working folder.

If you get a different error or there's no effect, please post back details and I can make another suggestion.

That seemed to be the obvious/easy resolve. However, I have just done this and it seems to be working fine now.

Thanks for this.
