SQL Server : Could not load file or assembly ‘Microsoft.SqlServer.BatchParser, Version=

I have recently encountered an issue with a third-party  backup application (Commvault) . I was trying to backup the databases on SQL 2014. It was throwing a 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 Application, we need to ensure we have both 32 bit and the 64-bit version of assembly found under c:\Windows\assembly. This Assembly Version= is something to do backward compatibility with SQL 2008 or R2 feature pack.
I couldn’t able to list the assembly in the c:\windows\assembly folder.



Download the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Feature Pack

  1. x64\SharedManagementObjects.msi
  2. x64\SQLSysClrTypes.msi

SQL Error


The SQLSysClrTypes.msi should be installed first due to its dependency on SharedManagementObjects.batchparser1

Successful Backup!!!.

I hope someone may get the hint from this post.

Job was done:-)
