Thank you so much for the links, unfortunately, beta version stops installing during services startup, unable to perform file level restore as the service fails to install and thus to start.
I gathered this from the Event Viewer.
- Code: Select all
Service cannot be started. System.OperationCanceledException: The operation was canceled.
at Veeam.Backup.DBCreator.EndPointDatabaseDeployer.CanDeploy(IDatabaseVersion databaseVersion)
at Veeam.EndPoint.CEndPointServiceImpl..ctor(CVbOptions options, CTerminationMediator terminator, CExternalEventsWatcher externalEventsWatcher)
at Veeam.EndPoint.EndPointService.OnStart(String args)
Seemed like previous installations of Veeam (latest version) did create a SQL instance on C:\Windows\System32\... and uninstalling did not remove it quite entirely.
I saw this when I tried deleting all Veeam entries from Registry.
In case anyone encounters the same issue as me, manually remove all entries of Veeam on Registry, delete the instance folder of Veeam database under C:\Windows\System32\... (exact path will be shown on Registry when you perform your research) and reboot your machine.
Re-install your beta version and voila, all works as charm!
Dima, thank you again for providing the download links!
