The thing to try is a manual install of just the SQL Express database. To do this:

  1. Be sure to not uninstall what you already have
  2. Download the CD version of Web Scraper plus.
  3. Unzip this to C:\WebScraperPlusCD.
  4. From there, you’ll find instructions under C:\WebScraperPlusCD\ManualInstall on how to proceed with a complete manual install, but all you should need to do is run InstallMSDE.cmd.
  5. This should install successfully. If it doesn’t at least you will see the install process for the SQL Server and where it is having trouble. From there you can continue to trouble shoot with support.

Once that is finished try Web Scraper again. If the program is still not working then try WebScraperPlus.exe, the main install exe, again. Don't uninstall anything before trying the automated install again. This should then fix the problem.
