I'm trying to get the list of database names / files from a backup file. Here's the code:


''' <summary>
''' Prepare a RESTORE2 object.
''' </summary>
Private Shared Function CreateRestoreObject(filePath As String, Optional forRestore As Boolean = False) As SQLDMO.Restore2
Dim res As New SQLDMO.Restore2()

' What to restore
res.Action = SQLDMO_RESTORE_TYPE.SQLDMORestore_Database

' Input data
res.Files = "[" + filePath + "]"

' Protection (?) password
res.Password = SLQBackupPassword

If forRestore Then
res.ReplaceDatabase = True
res.PercentCompleteNotification = 10
End If

Return res
End Function

Dim objRestore = CreateRestoreObject(filePath)
Dim hdrList = objRestore.ReadBackupHeader(srv)
Dim nameList = GetQueryResultList(hdrList, "DatabaseName")



The code works fine on a SQL Server backup, but fails with a "***Password protected***" string on SQL Server Express backups. The corresponding SQL statement
RESTORE HEADERONLY FROM DISK = N'...' WITH  FILE = 1,  NOUNLOAD ,  PASSWORD = N'...'

works correctly. What am I doing wrong?
