 Hi,

Hope, this is the right mailing list.

I installed postgres on Windows XP, as previledged user (so I have access).
I did not install it as a service. The database won't start after selecting
"Start database" from Start Menu.
The output:
************

C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.3\bin>"C:\Program
Files\PostgreSQL\8.3\bin\pg_ctl.exe"  start -D "C:\Program
Files\PostgreSQL\8.3\data\"
server starting

C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.3\bin>postgres cannot access the server
configuration file "C:/Program Files/PostgreSQL/8.3/data/postgresql.conf":
No such file or directory

************

So I checked, and there is no data directory. How to install version 8.3.0-1
of postgres properly on XP?

Regards,
Bigg
