Hmm, odd - that's the second time I've seen that error mentioned today.
Please try one of the following (I'm particularly interested to hear if
the second option works, but I appreciate it's a lot more work). BTW, do
you have the PostgreSQL Win32 beta installed? If so, what version?


Simple answer:

Copy the pgAdmin3 directory, and then uninstall the MSI. Put the copied
pgAdmin directory where the original one was and recreate the shortcuts.
This will work because pgAdmin doesn't register and dlls/ocxs etc. You
won't be able to uninstall in the future of course.

Complex answer:

Install the Microsoft Installer SDK from Use the msispy
program to check for pgAdmin MSI installations. Use msizap to kill *all*
those entries using the guid(s) found in msispy. Then reinstall pgAdmin.

Regards, Dave.
