PostgreSQL version: 8.0.2
Operating system: Windows 2000 pro
Description: reinstallation from scratch impossible
This is a possible case of bug in the installation process.
Yesterday I tried to install PostgreSQL 8.0.2 for Windows. During the
process of installation I didn't pay immediatelly attention to the process
of password installation because this machine is only accessible by me. I
decided to skip the password and a default one was generated. At this point
I considered it was a bad idea to use the default one (too complicated to
remember) and I decided to go backwards to install my own password. So I
clicked on the "back" button and entered a personnal password twice and
proceeded to "next". At this point the installation blocked because of the
password. So I decided to abort this installation and redo it from scratch.
But it doesn't work anymore: the system has the default password in memory
(and I don't know it) so any attempt to re-install the database package
fails. I do not see anywhere what to do to erase the "scrapies" remaining on
the hard disk.
Thank you for solving this newbie problem in installation.
