Bug reference: 2271
Logged by: Peter laursen
Email address: deepeter(at)snaps(dot)dk
PostgreSQL version: 220.127.116.11
Operating system: Win XP SP2 Home - Dansih
Description: no privilege to install
I installed 18.104.22.168 successfully some months ago. An update to 22.214.171.124
fails. Server program installs (Files copy, registry values are written)
but service does not install due to privilege issue.
However my user account is an ADMINISTRATOR account. But as ADMINISTRATOR
in WinXP HOME is another implementation than in WinXP PROFESSIONAL, I
suspect that the installer does not realize that difference! And I had no
problems with 126.96.36.199 of the kind and also not MySQL, Apache and other
programs installing services.
With XP Home I have no option to grant more privileges, except than logging
on as user 'ADMINISTRATOR' from fail-safe mode. However running
MSI-installer from failsafe mode is not possible/allowed. :-(
I 'worked around' the problem by running the UPGRADE.BAT until MSGBOX with
privilege issue occurred. Instead of cancelling the install I then killed
MSI from Task Manager.
The service that was there from the 188.8.131.52 install starts OK and PGADMIN
now identifies the server version as 184.108.40.206 and everything seems to work
However this should not occur!
