Once RedBeam is installed and you try opening the application, you may receive an error stating that Server (your server name)\RBAT, cannot be located or started. RBAT would be displayed as RIT or RCO depending on which application you have.
In this case you will need to manually install SQL Server 2008 Express. The download and steps for this installation can be found here.
