Is there a specific issue when using VSS (Volume Shadow Copy) with Windows
Server 2003? I've been developing a custom backup solution using the VSS API
and the IVssBackupComponents::GatherWriterMetadata() always returns
0x80070057, which I think is E_INVALIDARG. This code works fine under
Windows XP AND the API is implemented correctly as far as I can tell. It
just refuses to work.

Thoughts and suggestions?

Thanks

Here's my suggestion: Ask in a 2003 Server group. This is not an XP
issue now, is it?
