I have Still the same problems with the upgrading from 8.0 to 8.1.

I uninstalled the old version first and then i installed the 8.1 release
with an error message about ssleay32 library and some error messages about
the ┬źActivating procedural languages...┬╗ as this

*** from postgresql-8.1.log file ***

This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2867. The

Failed to connect to the database. Procedural languages files are
installed, but are not activated in any databases.

So the problem is simple:
Connecting by PgAdmin (but also by psql.exe), in the filelog appears this

*** from pgadmin.log file ***

	This probably means the server terminated abnormally

I uninstalled and installed again postgres-8.1, also removing manually any
keys and values from the Windows registry before reinstalling, but with
same results.


Where are problems?
