Question 1

I am able to install and initdb Postgres. But whenever I try to run psql or 
createdb, it fails and I get the message below.

The part which starts 'backend closed the channel....'  always comes up with 
rest of the message varying depending on the message.

psql: pqReadData() -- backend closed the channel unexpectedly.
	This probably means the backend terminated abnormally
	before or while processing the request.
createdb: database creation failed
pq_flush: send<> failed: The connection was aborted
pq_recvbuf: recv() failed: errno

Question 2

My postgresql.conf file is completely commented out.

Can anyone show me a sample which will at least allow connection via TCP/IP?

Could it be the reason why the commands above are not working?  I  execute 
these commands from the cygwin console.
