error creating shadow image

by robin.johnson In reply to unable to take backup in ...

Try this in the command prompt, it fixed my problem with shadow copy.

CD to Windows\System32
Net stop vss

Net stop swprv

regsvr32 ole32.dll

regsvr32 vss_ps.dll

Vssvc /Register

regsvr32 /i swprv.dll

regsvr32 /i eventcls.dll

regsvr32 es.dll

regsvr32 stdprov.dll

regsvr32 vssui.dll

regsvr32 msxml.dll

regsvr32 msxml3.dll

regsvr32 msxml4.dll

Reboot your server.

After reboot, open a command prompt and run:
vssadmin list writers

Ensure that all your writers are displayed w/o errors.
