I wanted to share the problems I encountered when trying to update my VEB from Version 188.8.131.524 to the current Version 184.108.40.206
When trying to install the installation failed when trying to update the MS SQL Server 2012 LocalDB.

I read that some had similar problems and solved them by rebooting the system prior to install. That did not help in my case.
Uninstalling and repair of the "SQL Server LocalDB" was also not possible from Windows.
What solved the problem for me was a solution I found here on the forum for a different issue with SqlLocalDB. After downloading PsTools I was able to delete the VeeamEndPoint Database (CASE A in the linked thread)
After a reboot the Installation went through without any issues. The only backdraw was that on the initial backup VEB was not able to recognize the existing backup and did a new full backup in a new Directory, instead of just the increment.
