Hello everyone,

I am using PostGreSQL for all my Web site's data. Now, a client of mine 
wants to use one of my "applications" off-line as well on a Windoze 
machine. I got all the other software to work fine there, but I have 
troubles getting PostGreSQL to run.

The descriptions on the mailing lists are spare and I have not yet found a 
good step by step description. Currently I am at the infamous "FATAL 
1:  SetPgUserName: no entry in host passwd file" problem and noone gives a 
clear answer how to solve it. But that is already much more than I want.
I just want the PostGreSQL server running locally without networking 
ability...all I want is to connect to a DB using the PyGreSQL Python 
module. Is there any way I can solve my problem quickly and clean? I do not 
want to install the entire Cygnus tools on my clients computer either.

Thank you very much for your time in advance.
