Published date: 26 June 2020

When attempting to create a manual archive in SPM 7.0.1 the user will receive the following error.

Database Manager
The following error occurred:
Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Scheduled database backups also fail to run.

Scheduled database backups

The scheduled database backup and archive tasks require the SQL dtsrun.exe package. If this executable is not present on the machine the tasks will fail.

Install the SQL Server 2005 backward compatibility components to resolve the issue. The 32 and 64bit versions of the installers are attached to this article.
