We have encountered an issue with a third-party backup application (Commvault). When trying to backup databases on SQL 2014 it was throwing the below error:
“Description: Error encountered during backup. Error: [ Could not load file or assembly ‘Microsoft.SqlServer.BatchParser, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91’ or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.]”


For some applications, we need to ensure that we have both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of assemblies found under c:\Windows\assembly. This Assembly Version= has something to do backward compatibility with SQL 2008 or R2 feature pack. It wasn’t able to list the assembly in the c:\windows\assembly folder.

Before: We can see that missing 64-bit assembly batch parser assembly.

Download the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Feature Pack

Select the respective component as per the processor architecture:

  • x64\SharedManagementObjects.msi
  • x64\SQLSysClrTypes.msi

The SQLSysClrTypes.msi should be installed first due to its dependency on SharedManagementObjects. 

After: We can see the file in c:\Windows\assembly folder

After the installation, the backup ran successfully.
