I found the answer.  You need to not only add to the "PATH" environment variable you also need to add to the "PATHEXT" the value of ";.COM".  This will allow the more command to be executed.

Thanks,

Lance

OS: windows 7 64 enterprise
Postgres: 9.0.4-1 from EnterpriseDB

I installed postgres with all of the defaults.  I made no change.  I get the following error when trying to use psql:

'more' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

I read on line that this issue can be cause from the file "more.com" not being found.  It recommended making sure it can be found in the PATH.  I checked and my path has this:

Path=C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;C:\Windows\System32\Wbem;C:\Windows\System32
\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Program Files\Broadcom\Broadcom 802.11\Driver;C:\Win
dows\idmu\common;C:\Program Files (x86)\QuickTime\QTSystem\;C:\Program Files (x8
6)\SSH Communications Security\SSH Secure Shell
PATHEXT=.CMD;.BAT;.EXE

Any thoughts on why I get this error?

Thanks,

Lance
