    Hello all,
    we had installed Acronis True Image Server 8.0 on the server. We uninstalled it in cause installing of VMware converter standalone 4.01.

    But now when we run VMware Converter, we get error message about VSS. The problem is, in my oppinion, in this:
    C:\>vssadmin list providers
    vssadmin 1.0 - Volume Shadow Copy Service administrative command-line tool
    (C) Copyright 2001 Microsoft Corp.

    Provider Name: Microsoft Software Shadow Copy provider 1.0
    Provider type: System
    Provider ID: {b5946137-7b9f-4925-af80-51abd60b20d5}
    Version: 1.0.0.7

    Provider name: Acronis VSS HW Provider
    Provider type: Hardware
    Provider ID: {f5dbcc43-b847-494e-8083-f030501da611}
    Version: 1.0

    C:\>

    Because VMware want use Acronis VSS but it is uninstalled...

    How I unregister VSS provider Acronis?

    Thanks

    Hello,
    I found solution of this issue. For deleting of Acronis VSS HW Provider (after uninstalling of Acronis True Image) do this steps:

    - in regedit delete key > HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\VSS\Providers\<Provider ID>

    - and delete key > HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet003\Services\VSS\Providers\<Provider ID>

    In my case was <Provider ID> this - {f5dbcc43-b847-494e-8083-f030501da611}

    After restart it will be ready. And in list of VSS providers will be only MS Shadow Copy provider.
