I tried to install Michael Stowe's BackupPC
client (with VSS support) on a Windows Server 2012 R2 server today. Unfortunately,
the installer program popped up an error: "Cannot determine
version of vshadow to use". There is only one choice: OK.
When you click on it, the installer stays frozen there until you
click Cancel, when the installer exits half-finished.
Does anyone have any suggestions as
to how I might be able to get past this? I am hoping that VSS hasn't
changed between Server 2008 and 2012, and it won't actually require any
code changes, just a change to the installer to get it past this.
I'm very willing to test both the installer
and the program. I don't use the BPC client much (most of my servers
have more than one drive), but when I can it's a really handy thing!
