I know there is a related topic with the same problem but that one is for version 5.0.0
There is a known problem with Windows 11 and the installation of Microsoft SQL Server where the engine will not install unless it is installed on a different drive or VHD.
I understand Veeam Agent for Windows uses SQL Server technology which is probably why it fails to install.
Question 1: Is Veeam working on a solution independent of Microsoft?
Question 2: I installed SQL Server 2019 Express with support for local DB but Veeam Agent for Windows still fails. Is there any way to have Veeam use the existing (operational) engine instead of attempting to install its own SQL engine? I read somewhere that they are using SQL 2012 but I haven’t tried preinstalling that version.
Question 3: Is there any way to trick Veeam into installing on a different drive?
I use Veeam at work and have been pretty happy with this product for home use. I already temporarily installed another backup solution but would love to go back to Veeam.
