I often receive emails from reader requesting solution to following error:
“SQLDUMPER library failed initialization. Your installation is either corrupt or has been tampered with. Please uninstall then re-run setup to correct to correct this problem.” in a modal dialog with the title “SQL Writer”
While searching online there are so many different solution and many time the solution is to reinstall SQL Server. There is no need to reinstall SQL Server or do any complex process. It is very simple to fix this issue.
Go to Add/Remove Program in windows Control Panel
Remove “microsoft SQL server vss writer” program
Reboot the computer.
The error should have gone by now. If you prefer you can reinstall SQL Server VSS Writer again.
