It might be the supper user you're talking about. I aborted during install
and haven't been able to install properly. I can't install unless I uncheck
"install as a service" and then pgadmin won't connect. I've uninstalled and
reinstalled a couple of times. with no change.
Is there a windows mailing list that would be more appropriate for these
questions? I'd like to ditch windows, but there are a few reasons I can't,
one of the big ones being that this is a shared computer with too small a
hard drive for a dual boot system.
