Issue with user instances

description

Hi, I've been using ExpressMaint 1.6.00 against SQL Server Express 2005 successfully for a few months and it has been working really well, thanks!
But, one of our developers has taken to using the user instance feature or SQL Server (by attaching a dbfile on connection). This causes the following error in the log
[7] Database C:\TEMP\PLAY\FUSION\DELTA.MDF: Backup starting at 20/01/2009 11:46:31
The given path's format is not supported
And the utility does not continue on to the next DB (even though I’ve specified the –C switch).
Is there a way to exclude user instances or would it be possibly for the utility to continue after such an error?
Thanks
Jon

Let me do some investigation and I'll add a fix for this. Sounds like the error is from SMO before the backup is attempted which is why the -C switch is not working

This is fixed in the latest version
