I run win2k sp4 and was running 7.3.4-1 prior to attempting to upgrade
to 7.3.4-2. When upgrading I also upgraded cygipc to 2.01-2 via Cygwin
setup scripts downloaded on the net. Prior to running the installation
scripts I shutdown the postmaster and ipc service via the list of
When I tried to restart the postmaster it would start and then stop with
IpcSemaphore errors(function not yet implemented). I don't have the
exact error message anymore sorry.
No matter how many times I reset the password of my postgres account(in
a bash shell) I could not log into the account in a bash shell. I could
log in under the postgres account via the windows login though. I was
not connected to my domain server when I did the upgrade but I wouldn't
think that would make a difference.
So next I tried to create a new database
cluster(/usr/share/postgresql/data2) under a different user account(an
account with local admin privileges but not the actual local admin
account). I received many successful messages but upon trying to create
the template1 database it crashed.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled both 7.3.4-2 and cygipc a number of
times. Have also rebooted a number of times.
I also tried starting the postmaster from both my existing service in
the list of services and from the command line. Until I reinstalled
7.3.4-1, in the list of services, I did not receive a message from
windows saying the postgres account was granted logon privileges
whenever I tried to reset the password the service started up with. I
can't say I received any error messages saying that the account was not
granted access rights either.
I didn't see anything else in the announcement email about other
required packages other than cygipc 2.X.
I had upgraded from previous 7.3X versions before without having any
I have given up and reinstalled 7.3.4-1 which seems to be working ok.
Did I miss a step somewhere?
