Cannot get WebGrabPlus_V4.2_install.tar.gz running

I have looked about but cant seem to get this working. Im trying to get get V4.2 working. I have past the stumbling block of getting .Net5.0 installed but still seem to be hitting a few issues.

My log is as follows:

[        ] Job started at 10/07/2022 12:31:34

And the config I am using for testing looks as follows:

  and http://webgrabplus.com/sites/default/files/downloads/Misc/Documented_Configuration_Files.zip -->

Any help or guidance on how to trace and fix this fault would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks all!

try disabling the mdb post processor...postprocess grab="y" run="n" <=== set to "n"
did u intend to run the mdb postprocessor?
if so it needs to be configured correctly.

Yeah you are correct I did have an unwanted space in my MDB-config. I am trying to get MDB working properly but that seems to be an ongoing mission.
