Hi Bob,

  Thanks for the vote of confidence Adrian.

  However, being 2 months shy of 68, there may be enough time left for me to continue learning PostgreSQL/PostGIS and Delphi to accomplish what I want to accomplish.

  I don't feel I should divert time to researching the intricacies of PostgreSQL installation. That's why I am asking the experts for help.

  If anyone has some thoughts or suggestions the log is REALLY below in this e-mail.

  The first 90% of the log is the installation prep and unpacking the different elements showing no problems until - (the first problem appears to be -- "Starting the database server...
  Executing cscript //NoLogo "C:\Program Files\PostgresPlus\8.4SS\installer\server\startserver.vbs" postgresql-8.4
  Script exit code: 1"

  - but I have no idea what this actually means.)

This suggests that - it failed to start the postgresql server.
But, I would love you see -what is the output after of initcluster.vbs script.


You won't find output of initcluster.vbs, if you're using existing data directory.

      It's a large file. I'm not sure what is needed but here is the latter part
      of the file.

    Actually I was thinking you might want to browse the file to see if anything
    stands out. Most of the issues I have seen on this list relative to Windows
    installs relate to permissions, so that would be a good place to start.
