Cause



This issue occurs when there is an issue with the Microsoft Report Viewer Redistributable 2005 or Microsoft .Net Framework not functioning properly.

 


Solution



Solution 1:
 
1. Stop all Backup Exec services.

2. Uninstall the Microsoft Report Viewer Redistributable 2005 using Add/Remove Program or the ReportViewer.exe from the following link
 http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=8a166cac-758d-45c8-b637-dd7726e61367&displaylang=en
 
3. Delete any files and folders from C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\ Temporary ASP.NET Files\CRF
 
4. Install Microsoft Report Viewer Redistributable 2005 again using the ReportViewer.exe link listed above.
 
5. Start all Backup Exec services

NOTE: This issue can also occur if Microsoft Report Viewer Redistributable 2008 is installed, but the 2005 version is not. The two versions can coexist on the same server. If this is the case then installing the Microsoft Report Viewer Redistributable 2005 version will resolve the issue. 
 
 

Solution 2:
 
If the issue occurs on a Windows Server 2008 R2 system:

Remove Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5SP1 from Server Manager using  "Remove Features" and then add it back using "Add Features".

    OR

1. Go to the Programs and Features control panel
2. In the Programs and Features control panel, click the link on the left named View Installed Updates.
3. Find the product named Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and uninstall it
4. Restart the server.
5. To reinstall Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 click on the link below
