Bug reference: 2271
Logged by: Peter laursen
Email address: deepeter(at)snaps(dot)dk
PostgreSQL version: 184.108.40.206
Operating system: Win XP SP2 Home - Dansih
Description: no privilege to install
I installed 220.127.116.11 successfully some months ago. An update to 18.104.22.168
fails. Server program installs (Files copy, registry values are written)
but service does not install due to privilege issue.
However my user account is an ADMINISTRATOR account. But as ADMINISTRATOR
in WinXP HOME is another implementation than in WinXP PROFESSIONAL, I
suspect that the installer does not realize that difference! And I had no
problems with 22.214.171.124 of the kind and also not MySQL, Apache and other
programs installing services.
With XP Home I have no option to grant more privileges, except than logging
on as user 'ADMINISTRATOR' from fail-safe mode. However running
MSI-installer from failsafe mode is not possible/allowed. :-(
I 'worked around' the problem by running the UPGRADE.BAT until MSGBOX with
privilege issue occurred. Instead of cancelling the install I then killed
MSI from Task Manager.
The service that was there from the 126.96.36.199 install starts OK and PGADMIN
now identifies the server version as 188.8.131.52 and everything seems to work
However this should not occur!
