Hi I'm getting the following VDI error 1010

VDI error 1010: Failed to get the configuration from the server because the timeout interval has elapsed. Check that the SQL Server instance is running, that you have the SQL Server System Administrator server role; and that no other processes are
blocking the backup or restore process; or try increasing the value of the VDITimeout registry setting in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Red Gate\SQL Backup\BackupSettingsGlobal\[InstanceName]
SQL error 3013: BACKUP LOG is terminating abnormally.
SQL error 4214: BACKUP LOG cannot be performed because there is no current database backup.

I've looked in the registry but there is no VDITimeout key ?

Any help greatfully appreciated.

    I fixed this by first adding the VDITimeout to the registry with a 2 minute timeout, then ran a FULL backup of the datasbase, followed by the Log backup and this worked.

    may thanks to anyone helping on this.
