  • Report: The new .NET updates break Veritas Backup Exec

    Posted on August 22nd, 2019 at 06:24 Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Two days ago, Microsoft released a bunch of patches for .NET Framework 3.5, 4.7.2 and 4.8.

    Now comes word from Günter Born that they’re breaking Veritas Backup Exec.

    The updates (per deskmodder.de):

    They all claim to fix the bug “Addresses a crash that occurs after enumerating event logs in Bass Class Library (BCL).”

    Born has a translation of a German blog post that says after installing the .NET 4.8 patches, Veritas BackupExec 20.4 won’t start. Apparently, rolling back the patch brings Backup Exec back to life.

    Have you had any problems with the .NET patches?
