      Have you installed postgresql previously?
      The HM installer uses postgrespass as password. Other passwords are dbpass and postgres.

      If you can't figure it out open a comman box as administrator and run
      net user postgres /delete

      After this you can assign a new password during the installation.

      Sir,

      I'm having the exact same problem. If I come home tonight and one of these things works, you'll be my hero for at least a day, and probably the whole weekend. Just so you know!

      Is the postgresql service running?
      Can you connect via pgadmin?
