- Users have Windows XP (SP2)/ Vista / Windows 7 or Server based systems.
- The error message every time I boot up.
- User can use the system normally by ignoring the error message and clicking OK.
- The problem may appear after installing Microsoft Visual Studio or other product.
Possible reason of the problems is un-installation of Outlook’s Business Contact Manager. The un-installation doesn’t stop or disable service SQL Server VSS Writer. You can find its status in Control Panel → Administrative Tools > “Services” as started with startup type set to start Automatic. The service SQL Server VSS Writer expects a working SQL Server installation that you have un-installed.
One of the possible solution is open “Services” from the Windows Control Panel → Administrative Tools or typing “Services.msc” in the Run command, and stop SQL Server VSS Writer service and set its startup type to manual.
