Support Win7 with SQLExpress already installed?

Hi there

We have a Windows 7 computer running an application that is using SQLExpress.
We would very much like to use Veeam Endpoint Backup on this computer, but is this supported?

When Endpoint Backup was available in preview, I think it was v0.9, the installation failed and progress bar 'rolled backwards' when trying to setup on this particular computer.
The computer is a at a remote location and I do not have remote access to it, so I have not tried installing v1.x on the computer yet.

Has anybody successfully installed Veeam Endpoint Backup on a computer where SQLExpress is already installed?

Hi,
Can remember exactly where but I’ve seen several reports that users actually use VEB to backup SQL Express without any issues. Feel free to test it and let us know if installation fails again, I bet we will investigate and fix it asap. Cheers!
