Volume Shadow Copy on WinXP

We use PowerArchiver 2011. On Windows7 we can backup
open Files with Volume Shadow Copy. But this is not possible
on WinXP. Volume Shadow Copy service is started , also
as Administrator.We get error message:

Dateien, die Momentan im Gebrauch sind, können mit Volume Shadow Copy Service komprimiert werden. Aktivieren Sie bitte diese Anwendung bevor Sie die Dateien, die zur Zeit gebraucht werden komprimieren. Wenn Sie 7-ZIP-Kompression verwenden, führen Sie die Anwendung mit Adminrechten aus.

did you try using VSS on some other computer, not only that one?
(so something is not wrong with Volume Shadow Service on that specific computer).

i have just tested VSS on an XP machine and it worked fine.
I tested both English and Multilingual versions...must be something specific.

solved

I tried it on another WS and had the same problem. So I tried
to use Volume Shadow Copy with NTBackup and got BSOD.
I found a link how to resolve the problem ( http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic94820-5.html )
After uninstalling all storgae volumes in device manager everything wored fine inclusive Power Archiver and open files.
So I did it also on the first WS and here also everything went
right.

But I cannot get PACL V7 to work with VSS.

Glad that's solved, thanks for letting us know.

What command are you using for PACL and it isn't working?

D:\test>pacomp -uvss -a -w -k -r -p -c2 d:\test\arch-admin.zip "c:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\administrator\ntu*"

New PACL:
http://www.powerarchiver.com/test/alpha125/pacl700.exe

you will need to register pauac.dll via regsvr32 if you dont have PA installed on same system, for VSS support to work (it must register Activex dll with Windows).
