Hi

 

If you specify an installation directory, the installer ignores it and
installs in default C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\7.5. This is wrong. Any way
round?. Locale is defaulting to C but the drop down list gives languages!

 

Regards

 

Farai

Great job. I've tried it and here are the little details I noticed:

- I think  the service doesn't check the postmaster.pid before starting, so
it fails after a abnormal Windows termination. The pid's ghost remains in
the data directory after a crash...

- The button "Next" doesn't become available after the filling of the last
box in some Windows. It "turns on" if we click anywhere, after that.

- The service is created Ok, but is set to start manually. By the way, I
think that warning about the creation of the limited user with "logon as a
service right" deserves a hole window, all for himself...

- The psql.exe asks the user's password, but says it is wrong even before it
is issued.

 

Just a question: is there any possibility to give  user the option to
install the Postgis extension? It would be nice, and that moment when the
packages to be installed are chosen (odbc, jdbc, etc) is specially
apropriate...

 

Congratulations for the outstanding work.

 

Jomar
