      Dear,

      I opened Elephant last week and Received the following message:

      "please create a new database. the database version has changed but a patch is not possible"

      I tried to creat a new database, has an error message 'cannot connect to 127.0.0.1". I then uninstalled postgres correctly according to a thread found on this forum. I re-installed postgres, restarted Elephant, created a new DB without any issue.

      I was then able to use Elephant again and reloded all my hands.

      It worked fine during one week.

      This morning the same bug happened again and I will have to re-install postgres again. I don't want to do it a third time. Any idea on a way to solve this issue ?

      Thanks in advance

      Well the easy solution would be to goto start -> programs -> postgresql 8.3 -> start service. After that you simply enter your postgresql data and connect to your old database. Everything should work from then on.
