      The message means that the database underlying your software is not available.

      I am not familiar with the software you are running, so i can't give you much information on how to solve this. Best suggestion i can come up with:

      Restart your computer and try again!

      Oh sorry I forgot to mention that. I run the Holdem Manager 1 . The professional edition

      I tried the restart m8 but unfortunately nothing happened. Could I try something else?

      Hey Duke

      I suggest following this thread. It might be outdated since this is way back in 2008 but then again it might not be :)

      Regards,

      You might try to start the postgres sql service first.

      First off, has this worked before and just stopped -- or has it never worked?

      If it HAS worked before, and a reboot does not help, then do the following:

      use the windows key on your keyboard, and type:
      win-R
      (hold down the windows key and tap the R key)

      You should see a "run" dialogue box.

      In that type :
      services.msc

      This brings up the services manager.
      Scroll down until you find some lines beginning with "postgres"

      If you find one (or more) make sure that their "startup type" is not "disabled"
      It should be "automatic" to start on boot.
      If it is not "automatic", right-click the name, choose "Properties" and set it to automatic.

      At least one of them should have "started" in the "status" column
      If not, and you have only one -- right-click it and choose "start"

      If there is more than one, try each in turn.

      If you do get as far as re-installing, check holdem Manager's recommendations for what version to install.

      I am running HM2, with postgres version 8.4.
      postgres version 8.3 is no longer supported, so don't install that one.

      V 9.x might work w/ HM2, but I can't say for sure.

      I do know that only 1 of the 9.x versions works -- but I cannot remember which one.

      Best of luck,
      --VS

      thank you a lot for your help m8. Unfortunately I had Postgresql 8.3 and when I chose start nothing happened. So I tried to download Postgresql 9.2.4 and everything works great now!
