I cannot recall.  If you are using SQL Express with WebInspect, it does not matter since the updating occurs when you open older scans.

If a schema update is required, e.g. you use a Standard or Enterprise Edition MSSQL Server for your scan storage, then you will be prompted by WebInspect.  Before you opt to let it Upgrade Automatically, take a moment to Copy the suggested query to TXT as a fall-back, and also be ABSOLUTELY certain you have a recent back-up of that scans database.  Reversing a failure will require Support intervention.  Just jump into SQL Studio and perform a Back-up right then.  If the Automatic Upgrade button then fails you, you can run that Query manually in SQL Studio.
