    Hi, thank you for your forum post and sorry that you have encountered a problem.

    The errors you are experiencing are being generated from Windows .Net.

    I suspect that you may need to repair or reinstall / install .Net 3 or .Net 3.5 SP1. I quote from your post:
    Unrecognized configuration section system.serviceModel. (C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Config\machine.config line 134)

    I believe system.serviceModel is WCF introduced in .Net 3.

    The SQL Backup V6 GUI requires .Net V2, which may mean that you need to remove .NET 3 and reinstall .NET V2 framework.

    Many Thanks
