I get this error message in Event viewer upon install of version

Event ID for the message in Event viewer is 660

Not sure exactly what to do to fix this. I need to have this fixed prior to Thursday 5/11/2006 as I have to travel to the site and get SQL backups scheduled for this customer.

Can you please advise? Thanks.

    In your SQL Server COM folder, there is a file named sqlvdi.dll. This is the backup library that SQL Backup uses. Try registering this dll manually e.g.

    regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\80\COM\sqlvdi.dll"

    This COM library might sometimes get unregistered when you install one instance of SQL Server, then install another instance, and later uninstall the later instance.
