Error: "Failed to load Provider" while Installing Backup Exec 2012

Created: 28 Mar 2014 • Updated: 10 Apr 2014 | 5 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.


i'm trying to Upgrade Symantec Backup Exec 2010 R3 to Backup Exec 2012 (V-Ray) on a Windows Server 2008 R2. I get the Error: "Die Installation ist aufgrund eines unerwarteten Fehlers fehgeschlagen: Fehler beim laden des Anbieters" which can be translated to: "The installation failed due to an unexpected error: Error loading provider". 

Steps I did befor I tried Upgrading Backup Exec:

I virtualized our physical Backup Server in VMWare.

Upgraded SQL 2005 to SQL 2008 R2.

Updated Backup Exec 2010 R2 till no more updates where available.

What I tried to solve this issue:

Successful run the pre Install check (Just got three Warnings: No Symantec AntiVirus, No media devices, Terminal services)

Run the Installation Local.

Repairing the WMI like suggested here, because i got the exact same Error Log. Unsuccessfully.

At the moment i'm re-downloding the ISO Image to verify that the ISO is not corrupted.

Thanks in Advance

    Hello sidd3009,

    The first Link deals with an Font error in the Registry. I checked the bkupinst.htm but i didn't encounter an Font Errors.

    I already included the second link in my Post. I also started a wim Diagnostic .bat. Here are the results.

    Right now i work on the Log

    Hello boykott,

    Turn off antivirus before running the install.  If that doesnt help you might need to do a clean install instead of an upgrade ( first make sure you have a copy of the database and catalogs folder)

    I virtualized our physical Backup Server in VMWare.

    Note that Symantec does not recommend the use of a VM for the media server and access to real devices from a virtualised media server is not supported.
