I'm seeing the following empty dialogue box when attempting to install the client components:
Any idea how to get this working?
Thanks for reaching out on the Redgate forums regarding this SQL Backup issue
Is this blank popup occurring all the time? or only when the server appears to be busy updating the process history?
If you can never upgrade using the GUI, please try the manual installation steps.
In the SQL Backup folder, there is a file named SQBServerSetup.exe. Please copy this file to the SQL Server instance, and run it there.
This installer installs the SQL Backup server components (the SQL Backup Backup Agent service, the command-line interface, the SQL Backup extended stored procedures and the hosted storage client).
Hopefully, this solves your issue and gets the server components installed
Thank you for the details on both of your instances, glad that the manual process worked to solve your immediate concerns.
I will escalate this to our development team to investigate as a bug in the software to be potentially resolved in a future release of SQL Backup
