      Hey dgybel,

      please uniinstall postgreSQL (in case it's already installed on your machine) using this bit of help: Deinstalling PostgreSQL correctly

      You will find the postgreSQL installation files in the PokerStrategy.com Elephant installation folder.

      Use those files to manually install postgreSQL.

      I have the same problem, did exactly as suggested. And now I have this error message when I type in my password:

      "Connection to server database lost!

      Further informations:

      FATAL: 28000 password authentication failed for user "norman""

      The password I created was done 2 seconds before this message, the password is not wrong.

      Hey Zareos,

      are you sure about the username?

      Yes. I am.

      Googled to find a solution, couldn't find one that worked. So I did a complete system re-boot of my computer, starting a fresh. I downloaded the current Elephant version and now, I have this error:

      'PostgreSQL DB server 8.3' (pgsql-8.3) failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services.' The two buttons are 'Retry' and 'Cancel'.

      I have Windows XP, am the only user on the computer and the system administrator.

      When I had the old version of Elephant this wasn't a problem, when I had the free trial of PT3 this wasn't a problem. This is extremely irritating as I just want to post some hands on the forums here to improve as a player.... :f_cry:

      Hey Zareos,

      sorry that you are experiencing problems.

      Are you currently using the windows "Administrator" account? If not, do you have access to it?

      Well, the error messages clearly states a lack of privileges to install services. I'm afraid there is nothing more I can tell you, other then trying to install it with a real administrator account.

      Try creating a new Windows User with administrator privileges.
