Description: Admin can't connect and won't use port 5432
The installer forced me to use port 5433.
Admin launched, I could see the DB in the object pane, but I could not start
it. I had to use port 5433.
So how can I make it work with the correct port and start it?
It won't work.
I tried to open the port on firewall, but it doesnt work with the firewall
I already tried the install with firewall off trick.
Not sure why it created a new User account on my login screen called
postgress either. Was that necessary?
Baffled. I am blaming MS and VISTA at this point.
