I just installed postgres 7.4.3 on a win2000, here the default max  
connections was set to 40, thanks anyway.

Installing on the win2000 gave me a problem and I found one of your  
mail/replies from the 1/7/2004  
(http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.db.postgresql.cygwin/2502), I have  
the precise same error and the only thing I can see that might course it  
is that I was forced to install cygwin in e:\cygwin and not in c:\cygwin.  
Is there anywhere I can set the -l parameter to postmaster like with  
pq_ctl or is there a other way around this problem?

Regards,
Martin
