This issue has been solved. See solution.

Backup Exec 2012 SP3 running on Windows Server 2008 R2, fully patched, everything 64 bit, backing up four Windows Server 2008 R2 servers (including itself) and a VMware ESXi 5.1 host running a mix of Windows and Linux VMs. Backups of VMs running Windows XP are emitting this warning:

V-79-57344-38732 - Virtual machine '\(DC)ha-datacenter(DC)\vm\calypso_testvm-Mail1' does not meet the requirements necessary for Backup Exec to restore individual application items. You cannot perform GRT-enabled restores of application data from this backup.

I found postings here stating that GRT is not supported when backing up Windows XP VMs, but they refer to Backup Exec 2010. Does that limitation also apply to version 2012?
