Web Scraper and Web Macros FAQs

If you have installed the new version and can open the console and packages just fine, but get a 462 run-time error when opening the datapage, try the following:

  • Open the registry Editor (From the Start-> Run box, type regedit)
  • Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE-> SOFTWARE-> Velocityscape-> Providus
  • Right-click on the main window and choose New-> String Value
  • Rename the New Value #1 to DoStartSQL
  • Right-click the DoStartSQL key, choose "Modify" and in the Value data box type -1

Restart Web Scraper and retry the datapage. It should allow you to now create and edit this without the error.

If for some reason you are not able to change the registry, try running Web Scraper as an administrator.

This may also have something to do with errors importing packages/datapages saying something about severe error in zip file format.
