Windows Vista VSS annoyance

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 26-Mar-2007 08:23

Every time a program wants to start the Volume Shadow Copy I see these entries in the Windows Event log:


Event ID: 32
Volume Shadow Copy Service error: The VSS Coordinator class is not registered. This may be caused due to a setup failure or as a result of an application's installer or uninstaller.
Operation:
Instantiating VSS server

Event ID: 8193
Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error calling routine CoCreateInstance. hr = 0x80040154.
Operation:
Instantiating VSS server


There is no documentation at all about these messages. It's been like that since the first time I booted this laptop.

I know the Shadow Copy function is working because I tested with some picture files (right-click a file and select Previous Versions)... But I don't understand why this error shows up when programs want to run backups.
