I am trying to install version 9.1 of the Acronis True Image Agent Enterprise Server on Windows SBS 2008 Service Pack 2, but I get the same message everytime: 'The installation was interrupted before Acronis True Image Enterprise Server could be installed. You need to restart the installer to try again.' I have created a log file of the install which I have attached to this post.

Hello aaorn.portelli,

Welcome to our forum and thank you for posting. I will do my best to assist you with this.

From the installation log it appears that the low-level driver called SnapApi responsible for disk operations fails to install properly.

I can suggest the following:

1. Download and install this Snap Api update which is available here.

2. Try installing the program and if it fails, kindly provide me with the installation log one more time.

Acronis VSS provider is used to initiate creation of VSS snapshot, but MS VSS service is actually used

This article applies to:


Acronis True Image provides technology to automatically utilize Microsoft VSS service to create consistent backups of opened files/folders or databases (in case the database supports VSS technology).

Here is the step-by-step description of how the backup is made with the VSS support option enabled:

  1. Acronis True Image initiates VSS snapshot. This snapshot is created by MS VSS service via Acronis VSS provider, which is in fact a 'fake' VSS provider. Acronis True Image must start VSS snapshot creation through Acronis VSS provider to capture the moment when all VSS writers freeze and databases are ready for backup. This is the only purpose of Acronis VSS provider, e.g. VSS snapshot created in this step is not used at all and is in fact a 'fake' one. It was necessary to create this 'fake' VSS provider because MS VSS service does not have API functions to freeze VSS writers directly;
  2. Acronis True Image sends a request to MS VSS service to suspend VSS writers;
  3. Acronis True Image creates a simple snapshot (not a VSS snapshot). This snapshot is created when all writers freeze and databases are ready to be backed up;
  4. Acronis True Image aborts VSS snapshot initiated by MS VSS, as this snapshot is not necessary. This may result in errors in the Windows Event logs, which can be safely skipped.
  5. Acronis True Image initiates a backup through the simple snapshot created in Step 3.
