SMO Backup event PercentCompleteEventHandler not fired

  • Hi,

    When I run this code, the event PercentCompleteEventHandler (Backup_PercentComplete); never fired.

    Then event ServerMessageEventHandler(Backup_Complete) is fired

    when the backup is complete.

    The backup operation run Ok and without errors.

    Runnig with vs 2008 and sql server 2008 r2 RTM

    Objects SMO version

    Any ideas?

    The code:

    using System;

    using System.Data;

    using System.Collections;

    using Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Common;

    using Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo;

    class Program


    static void Main(string[] args)


    BackupDeviceItem bdi = new BackupDeviceItem(@"c:\temp\MyDB.bak", DeviceType.File);

    Backup bu = new Backup( );

    bu.Database ="MyDB";


    bu.Initialize =true;

    bu.PercentCompleteNotification = 10;

    // add percent complete and complete event handlers

    bu.PercentComplete += new PercentCompleteEventHandler(Backup_PercentComplete);

    bu.Complete += new ServerMessageEventHandler(Backup_Complete);

    Server server = new Server("localhost");


    Console.WriteLine(Environment.NewLine + "Press any key to continue.");

    Console.ReadKey( );


    protected static void Backup_PercentComplete( object sender, PercentCompleteEventArgs e)


    Console.WriteLine(Environment.NewLine + e.Percent + "% processed.");


    protected static void Backup_Complete(object sender, ServerMessageEventArgs e)


    Console.WriteLine(Environment.NewLine + e.ToString( ));



  • I can't do it. Can you?
