This should'nt be necessary (though your code looks OK. Under Tools ->
Options in pgAdmin, just set the Log Level to 'Debug' and then reconnect to
the target database. All the SQL & error messages should then end up in the
logfile (usually C:\pgAdmin_nnnn.log).

That's a common one. Just make sure you have a complete matched set of dlls
- in particular pgAbsPlg.dll and pgSchema.dll. You should also make sure
your build is compatible with a stock pgMigration.dll.

Actually we normally use yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm:ss (ISO-8601?) which should work
no matter what your locale is. However, this doesn't appear to be the case
in this code - I'll look into it (probably be later today now).
