SQL Dumper error

    Question

  • Every time I start my laptop I receive a message saying “SQLDUMPER library failed initialization.  Your installation is either corrupt or has been tampered with.  Please uninstall then re-run setup to correct to correct this problem.” in a modal dialog with the title “SQL Writer”.

     

    I have no idea what this is, and I don't know what sqldumper is either. Can someone help me with this please?

    Thank you!

  • SQLDumper is used to collect stack information and debug information in case SQL Server crashes. The dump that is created out of this is normally send to Microsoft and is used by the development team to debug problems (not that you can elect not to send this information to Microsoft).

    The error above means that likely your SQL Server installation is corrupt, so I would suggest that you reinstall SQLServer.

    Thanks,

  • You can uninstall all 3 of them and then install SQL Server again (SQL Server setup will install all 3 programs).

  • Arnie I went to Add/remove programs, and clicked add/remove on a program called Microsoft SQL server (and the name was longer...). It removed it from the computer (did not give me the option of reinstalling it). I still have the problem of the SQL dumper when I turn on the computer...

    How do I reinstall the SQL Server? (not from add/remove programs because it's not there!)

    Thank you

  • I had the same problem. Here's what happened to me.

    I installed Business Manager for Outlook 2007.

    I decided to uninstall (because it took Outlook forever to load).

    It prompted me to uninstall Business Manager AND SQL Server 2005. WRONG!
    This is when I received the error message on the next boot.

    How to fix:

    Reinstall Business Manager (or Microsoft Accounting, if this is what you did).

    Then uninstall Business Manager but this time uncheck uninstall SQL Server.

    SQL Server remains and the unwanted program goes.

    You're in business.

    Does anyone at MS troubleshoot stuff like this? I did exactly what they told me to do.  ARGGGG!

    Judy, who's un-tech savvy but even a stoop like me could figure out where MS went wrong!

    Same here.  I downloaded the MS office 2007, I uninstalled Outlook 2007, then I received this error message on boot up.  I then deleted the whole MS office program, still the same error.  I have no idea which of the 3 files I need to delete.  Hope someone can help soon.

  • I seem to be one of many that needs to know how to get rid of the SQLDUMPER LIBRARY error message, after removing a trial of Microsoft Office Acct 2007, and the Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express (MSSMLBIZ) at the same time. To uninstall, which of the 3 choices do I take?  1) SQL Server Native Client ; 2) SQL Server Setup Support Files (English); or 3) Sql Server VSS Writer. And finally, after uninstalling this, is it needed to do a re-installation for other programs?  Thanks.

    Saturday, May 12, 2007 7:28 PM
  • Hi Kelp123,

     

    From the Add/Remove Programs, I removed the Microsoft SQL Server VSS Writer.

    For the time being I did not remove the two other SQL Programs (Native Client and SQL Setup Support).

    The warning "SQLDumper Library" is now gone and I have no other problems.

    Thank you.

  • Hi everyone,

    I removed all three SQL files and then did a search for "microsoft SQL Server" and downloaded the Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition from www.snapfiles.com/get/sqlserver.html which I then installed and it completely fixed the whole problem.  I now have the entire programs in my Add/Remove programs list again.  So my recommendation is to delete all 3 SQL files and then redownload it from the snapfiles URL and then install it which took about 5-10 minutes to complete, but I no longer have the SQL Dumper error when I startup.  It appears to have completely fixed the whole problem.  I hope this is helpful to anyone still encountering the error.  Angel Blessings, Tyler

    Tuesday, June 05, 2007 10:17 PM
  • I developed the same warning after installing Office 2007.

     

    Also using the Add/Delete Programs, I removed the program "Sql Server VSS Writer" and no longer get the warning.

     

    So far everything seems to be working OK, so I'm not going to reinstall unless there are problems.

  • I am having the same problem as the rest of you in this section. Mine started after uninstalling MS Accounting.  I went to add/remove programs and found the files; however, there is no option to "remove" any of the 3 SQL files....any suggestions here? it only states that they are used "rarely"!

  • Hello Marcel van der Holst...

     

    Do you know how to resolve this problem BEFORE logging into Windows XP?  I am experiencing problems on another computer at work (on a server) and this error pops up when I am to log onto that computer.  I CAN'T click "OK" nor "Esc" nor "Ctrl-Alt-Del".  I've tried several different things and I can't even log onto Windows.  I was using a wireless keyboard and mouse and even tried using a corded mouse and keyboard, yet was NOT able to get out of the error window.

     

    Please let me know what I need to do, if you know how to resolve this issue.

     

    Thanks!

    Wednesday, November 14, 2007 3:17 PM

  • After uninstalling Microsoft Business Manager, I started having this problem.  Thanks for posting the solution, I can confirmed that after uninstall SQL Server VSS Writer, the boot time warning went away.  The VSS Writer is an NT Service, if you don't want to uninstall it, you can also simply disable it.  See http://www.eggheadcafe.com/software/aspnet/30051125/sqldumper-library-failed.aspx.

    Thursday, January 10, 2008 2:41 PM
  • Where would someone obtain the software you reference?

    Sunday, January 13, 2008 5:27 AM
  • I upgraded to Office 2007, and came across the same problem with Business Contact Manager crippling Outlook.  I didn't fully understand what Business Contact Manager was at installation so I opted for the full install (get your money's worth I guess?!?!).  I now know that it is a tool that a majority of home users will never use and it slows Outlook down to a crawl!  After removing Business Contact Manager, the SQL writer error was appearing at start-up (and Outlook was back to normal).

     

     

    Following some research and interpratation of the above posts, I can offer the following:

     

    "Microsoft® SQL Server™ is a database management and analysis system for e-commerce, line-of-business, and data warehousing solutions." (From: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb545450.aspx)

     

    The SQL Server is installed with Busniness Contact Manager, but the program removal does not fully remove the server.  The fix most of us are looking for is to remove all three files....'microsoft SQL server native client', 'microsoft SQL serversetup support files', and 'microsoft SQL server vss writer'.

     

    If you want to continue using other data base programs, (ie. removing Business Contact Manager but continue with Accounting, the previous posts on re-installing the SQL server are the way to go.  SQL Server 2005 can be dowloaded directly from Microsoft at th following link: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-ca/sqlserver/bb331754.aspx

    In Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs/

     

    single click the SQL Server client

     

    select the link for support information

    delete all the sql files, re - instal from official MSN site.... You may need your Microsoft licence number, found on yer external hardrive somewhere... However upon instalation MSN servers should detect if you are running original fegistered micfrosoft products... Hope this helps

  • Hello Rutgers,

     

    I assume since it's been almost a year since you posted you had your issue resolved?  But for the rest of you who come up against this problem with Microsoft SQL Server, which includes: Server Native Client, Server Setup Support Files, Server VSS Writer, and that nasty little error message about SQLDUMPER, you can remove it all without harming your computer or your files.

     

    I also had a trial version of Office Professional 2007 for school and when the trail period ran out I uninstalled the '07 software, but for some reason it didn't remove the SQL stuff.  I had to manually remove myself by going into Add/Remove programs.  When I restarted my computer, the error message was gone.

     

    You only need the Microsoft SQL Server for the Accounting and Business Managment program in the Office 2007 Suite software.  If you're no longer using Microsoft Office 2007, you don't need these files.

     

    Feel free to confirm with Microsoft if you have doubts.

     

    Good luck!

    Tuesday, April 22, 2008 10:18 PM
  • I was able to use safe mode and my keyboard/mouse worked.  However, I could not uninstall any programs in Safe Mode.  I eventually did a repair on the operating system.  That worked.  I had to get all the current updates inorder to uninstall some of the SQL compenents.  For our system, I deleted all the SQL items and did not reinstall.

    Friday, April 25, 2008 2:30 PM
  • Same anoyying problem and reading this SQL Dumpr thread gave the answer. I deleted 'microsoft SQL server vss writer' (Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs), restarted the laptop and no longer do I get the error message.

  •  

    yr pc should not display any SQL, so cannot install SQL Server. Unless you are

    now running some program that need SQL.

     

    Are you running Outlook Exchange ? After installation, this error occurs ?

     

    *** you have SOPHOS anti virus installed which uses SQL.

     

    any other software you have installed prior to this error ? that might be the

    clue to resolve.

    I really appreciate your answer, because i was with the same problem.Everytime i open my computer it appears the same message.I think that happened because i remove from my computer Microsoft office accounting 2007.I only remove Microsoft SQL Server VSS Writer, and it worked. But still in Panel-remove or add programs-i still have there Microsoft office Small Business Connectivity Components!!!.Can i also remove this, or is it better don´t touch this?

    Thank you.I appreciate a quick answer.

  • You would need to remove option 1 (SQL Native Client) listed in Kit's comments above.

     

    Another thought is that this error is related to changing the computer name, see this thread: http://discussions.virtualdr.com/showthread.php?t=220983

    Previsouly in this new computer bought in oct 2008, I have boutght it with Office 2007, but I have taken it off (no possible to save a Excel sheet on a network drive).

    After I have received the message SQLdumper librairy failed blabla in each power on.

     

    I have stopped all services SQL (control panel, computer, services)

    I have download a new version of SQL 2005 : http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=D07219B2-1E23-49C8-8F0C-63FA18F26D3A&displaylang=fr#filelist

    (I have not download the last correctif pack number 9 of SQL 2005, it was not my purpose).

    the X86 file.

    I have deleted all the SQL compounds (control panel, programs, delete)

    Restart

    I have install the installation pack

    Go to C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Setup Bootstrap launch of the setup program.

    Hope this helps to people with similar issues ;)

  • I had the same problem. Running Windows XP Pro on a new computer that had Office 2007 already installed, but I didn't want it so I installed Office 2004 on top of it. I got rid of the "SQL Dumper library failed initialization" message not by deleting the SQL Server VSS Writer but by disabling it. This I did by going to Control Panel > administrator tools > computer management > services and applications > services, then scrolled down to SQL Server VSS Writer, double clicked it, and changed it to "disabled". After rebooting, the message no longer reappeared PTL.

  • Try this one:

    http://download.cnet.com/Add-Remove-Program-Cleaner/3000-2096_4-10572853.html

    it gets those hard to get out progs.

    Microsoft also makes one for It's own specific stuff :

    [MSICUU2.exe] yet it was discontinued 2 months ago. If you do a search, I am sure you will find someone still has it.

     

    Also, you can use "CCleaner" to edit the startup list, so it does not auto-start anymore under tools-->startup.

    Let me know if this helps.

    Also, go into services, and disable that specific service. (ctrl-panel-->admin-->services)

    Hope this helps!

  • I have the same problem with the SQL error message and after clicking ok or even clicking on the top righthand box it just goes into a forever mode of "loading your personal settings" and literally never recovers from this screen.

    Can anyone help me get beyond this screen so that I can do the uninstall instructions that are stated above?

  • Socaldesert i had the same problem but sometimes it started up normally and had the pop up error afterwards and sometimes it popped up before the computer finished loading, try restarting a few times and hopefully one time youll get in and get a chance to uninstall those files.

  • Stephania,

    Lesson learned, Arnie gave you only half of the fix that the previous poster suggested.... next time before you remove anything such as drivers, software, etc... make sure you have the fix in hand.

  • SQL Writer, a component of SQL Server, uses Volume Shadow Copy to perform backup / restore from third party application like TSM / NET Backup etc. so a subcomponent of Microsoft SQL server VSS writer has failed.

    So in case you are not using any third party software to perform SQL backup and restore operations, you don’t need this piece of SQL Server.

    Fix / Workaround / Solution:

    To FIX this issue / error we can either disable this Services or Stop this Service or uninstall / Reinstall this component.

    For More Details to fix this issue, check SQL Dumper Error
