    Hi Ed,

    Sorry you're experiencing issues with the installer.

    I've seen this before and the current workaround is to run the installer for just the web piece, then browse to the website and follow the instructions to install the base monitor from there. There will be a separate installer for the base monitor that you'll download. You can also get that installer here: ftp://support.red-gate.com/patches/SQL_ ... .0.497.exe

    Hope that helps.
