Webinspect is an automated web application security scanning tool from HP. It helps the security professionals to assess the potential vulnerabilities in the web application. It is basically a dynamic black box testing tool which detects the vulnerabilities by actually performing the attack. Today we will see how to install HP Webinspect in Windows.

We will be installing it on Windows 10. HP Webinspect requires SQL server to be installed on the system. So first install SQL server express on Windows as shown here.
