I am using SQLDMO backup object in VB6. I am declaring the object WITHEVENTS so I can use the PercentComplete event to update a progress bar. When I execute the SQLBackup method, it creates a legal, restorable backup in the correct location. It also updates the progress bar perfectly. But it raises an error -2147221499 [SQL-DMO]Code execution exception: EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION. I have searched the web for this error and haven't found much info in the context that I need. MSDN offers workaround fixes, but not specifically for the sqldmo backup object. My frustration has reached the point where I'm actually considering trapping and ignoring the error, since I do have valid backups being generated. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
