DPM 2012 Protecting SharePoint 2007


I need to protect a SharePoint 2007 SP2 setup for a short period.

I checked this technet article configuring the front-end web server and it only states that i need a KB941422, but it's not SharePoint 2007 SP2, so i proceeded with normal configuresharepoint etc. and it all went well.

SharePoint farm version

Windows 2003 R2 x64 SP2 

SQL 2005 SP3 9.0.4035

SQL 2008 10.0.2531

DPM 2012 SP1 4.1.3417.0

SQL Alias is not used. But vshadow cannot run on the server so that may be a clue, but i'm not sure, it says it could not locate something in VSSAPI.DLL (Version 5.3.3790.3959)

But when i create a new protection group and i try check the SharePoint farm i get the following error:

Found the solution.... This KB940349 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/940349/en after that was installed on all servers in the farm it all worked....

But it's not stated in the prereqs. so hopefully it will be if other people needs to protect an old farm :)
