Having installed Veeam FastSCP onto my Windows 7 (64) Ultimate workstation I was getting the error messages Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID [5F1555F0-0DBB-47F6-B10B-0AB0E1C1D8CE] failed due to the following error:  800700c1
FIX:

running “corflags “C:Program Files (x86)VeeamVeeam Backup and FastSCPVeeamShell.exe”  /32BIT+” to resolve the issue with FastSCP not working on any 64bit Windows OS resulted in the above error message when trying to copy files between Datastores.

Short Approach

Download the Corflags.exe program from here, copy it to a folder of your choice (I used C:Temp)

Launch an elevated command prompt and browse to c:temp.

Now run corflags “C:Program Files (x86)VeeamVeeam Backup and FastSCPVeeamShell.exe”  /32BIT+

Now launch FastSCP and you should be good to go

Long Approach

For those wanting to do the entire process the following describes what you need to do.

First of all download the 64bit Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 SDK from here

Once downloaded run Setup.exe

net1

Click Next

net2

Click Accept and Next

net3

Untick the top two boxes, unless you actually want it installed.

net4

Accept the defaults and click on Install.

Once the installation is complete launch an elevated command prompt and browse to C:Program FilesMicrosoft.NETSDKv2.0 64bitBin

Now run corflags “C:Program Files (x86)VeeamVeeam Backup and FastSCPVeeamShell.exe” /32BIT+

Now run FastSCP and you should be good to go
