The Backup Exec Preinstall Environment Checker may display a warning that the installation could fail with WMI errors.

The errors described in the table below are generic SQL Express installation or WMI errors.

 

UMI Description

Solution


1.To diagnose issues with the WMI, use the WMI diagnosis utility:

          https://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/topics/help/wmi.mspx

3.The commands in the list below can be run in a Windows command prompt to re-register WMI.

 
net stop winmgmt
 
cd /d %windir%\system32\wbem
 
for %i in (*.dll) do RegSvr32 -s %i  
 
scrcons.exe /RegServer  
 
unsecapp.exe /RegServer
 
wbemtest.exe /RegServer
 
winmgmt.exe /RegServer
 
wmiadap.exe /RegServer
 
wmiapsrv.exe /RegServer
 
wmic.exe /RegServer
 
wmiprvse.exe /RegServer
 
net start winmgmt
 

4.Alternatively, they can be run via CMD or BAT files; however, the third line will need to modified as follows:

 
for %%i in (*.dll) do RegSvr32 -s %%i
 

5.  This should resolve the WMI errors and the Backup Exec installation should complete successfully.
