    Could you please run the following in SQL Server Management Studio while logged in as a SQL Server admin:
    EXEC master..sqbdir 'c:\'
    
    If the same error occurs, you'll need to register that extended stored procedure i.e.
    sp_addextendedproc 'sqbdir', 'xp_sqlbackup.dll'
    
    See here for details on the other extended stored procedures that you could check to see if they have also been registered.

    again, i got below error

    Msg 17750, Level 16, State 0, Procedure sqbdir, Line 1
    Could not load the DLL xp_sqlbackup.dll, or one of the DLLs it references. Reason: 126(The specified module could not be found.).

    It looks like the SQL Backup server components have not been installed on this instance.

    It is possible to install the server components remotely on the server from the GUI, so you can try doing that first.

    If that fails, could you please run the server components installer directly on the server? The installer file is named SQBServerSetup.exe, and can be found in the folder on the workstation where you installed the GUI. This installer needs to be copied to your server and ran there.
