I am using  Backup Exec 2015.

Suddenly I have got this problem:
When I start the management console, it asks me manully to connect to the backup server.
All services are running, both SQL and Backup Exec.

When I connect, I get the error: The BackupExec Management Service was unable to start.
See attached screenshot.

Does anyone know this problem?

NB:
There was a Windows update since it last worked:
November Rollup for .NET Framework (KB3195382)

I would make sure your BE installation is also current... If it is out of date, it may be why it failed after a Dot Net update... Just a pre-emptive suggestion.
