Challenge

Backup and replication jobs processing Virtual Machines using Windows Server 2008 as a proxy server may report:
 
Processing <VM name> Error: Backup proxy <Veeam backup proxy name> is missing C++ runtime components, download from http://vee.am/runtime 

Cause

Working with VMware vSphere requires vddk of a proper version, which, in its turn requires Visual C++ run-time components. Veeam Backup and Replication does not perform its automatic installation on servers running Windows Server 2008, thus it should be installed manually.

Solution

Perform manual installation of the proper version of Visual C++ run-time components. Requires version may be checked in the following table:
 

VMware vSphere version Visual C++ Redistributable Packages version
4.1. 5.0, 5.1 not required
5.5, 6.0 Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x64)
6.5, 6.7 Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013
