Error 1406 – Backup Exec 2010 R3 failed to upgrade


Hi Curtis,
The error occurs due to insufficient permissions in the registry for the account in use.
This issue can be resolved as follows:
1) Go to ‘Start’, ‘Run’ type ‘regedit32.exe’
2) Navigate to HKLMSoftwareBackupExecForWindowsServerBackupExec13.0
3) Right Click on the key ’13.0’, Select ‘Permissions’
4) Check that accounts ‘System’, ‘Administrator’ have all control permissions assigned
5) If the issue still exists, create a DWORD AdammLocal at HKLMSoftwareBackupExecForWindowsServerBackupExecServer and set it to ‘0’
6) Click ‘Retry’ and the error will be resumed
