Ok thanks for the info. I am reinstalling with Windows 2003 R2 64-bit. If I want to download SQL Express which 64 bit versions are safe for me to use?

No problems have been reported for that.

From what we have found so far the problem is most likely caused by a bug in windows2008R2 only.
If you are creating a new virtual machine I would recommend another os while we search for a solution.

I also want to install IIS and use it as my webserver as the lansweeper webserver doesnt allow me to restrict access I believe.

I have completely reformatted and reinstalled the VM (Windows 2008 R2 64-bit).
I would like to install Lansweeper now.
I would like my SQL Data & Logs to live on a Drive other than the System Drive.Do I need to download SQL Express 64 on my own to accomplish this or will Lansweeper allow me to do this?
Is there any additional logging you want me to turn on before I install anything else?
fyi. I am not going to install VMware tools this time at all.

I would have to check my logs if it is the exact same issue. Did you install you SQL data & logs on a partition other than C:?
I did notice this similarity between our installs - a seperate install of SQL.

Question for lansweeper: Hace you seen sucsessful installs on w2k8 r2 64bit where lansweeper installs the db for you? Why did mine fail?
I had to uninstall and reinstall after this. I downloaded SQL express afterward, installed it the reinstalled lansweeper.
What logs can I provide?

I have removed all group policies from The Computer, service accounts and the user I am logging on with. Same thing.
