Have you followed all the instructions at ? – Dennis G Mar 8 '13 at 9:57
moontear, Thanks. I have already seen the links you mentioned. There appears to be MSSQL$Sharepoint in the Registry and one of the program complaints if I try to configure is, that it does not start. Perhaps it is not there to start. – user2063329 Mar 8 '13 at 20:13

I did have a problem with dbwrap.exe during my installation of SharePoint Foundation 2010, but it was solved by changing the registry value:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\14.0\WSS\ServerRole

from SINGLESERVER to APPLICATION and rerunning the setup.
