I'm having troubles with postgreSQL beta2-dev3 on Windows XP.
1) During the installation, I've got some error/warning dialogs ....
The first 4 screens are from the installation.
The last one is from pgAdmin III.
2)Windows task manager shows pg_ctl.exe, postmaster.exe, and 2 postgres.exe processes
running (by user postgres). Also, the windows service manager shows that the pg server is running. So,
a) I've tried to connect from the command line:
psql: server closed the connection unexpectedly
This probably means the server terminated abnormally
before or while processing the request.
b) PgAdmin III failed too.
3) Note that the PC has no internet access.
In the log file in the pg_log/ directory, available at
there is :
2004-09-16 06:59:04 Central Europe Daylight Time LOG: incomplete startup packet
2004-09-16 06:59:05 Central Europe Daylight Time LOG: could not receive data from client: An operation was attempted on something that is not a socket.
Perhaps, it has something to do with networking?
The server can be stopped and restarted through the windows XP service manager ,no problem, but, I cannot connect to it.
My PC is a Pentium III @ 700Mhz, 512MB , WinXP pro, Service Pack 1.
Also, I'm concerned about the procedural lang not being installed, I need it :-(
Thanks for helping.
