This problem occurs when running postgres locally on win2k ,

psql was running ok but now when typing:
c:\>psql psql -d template1
c:\>psql -U username
c:\>psql -l
c:\>psql -e

I still get
 psql: server closed the connection unexpectedly
 	This problem means the server terminated abnormally
 	before or while processing the request.

I have checked the .pid file on the starting of postgres which is fine and
the log file said that postgres is still running.

I have checked the TYPE, DATABASE, IP_ADRESS in pg_hba.conf
I have checked my host.txt and the IP is correct. In pgruntime.config,
tcpip_socket = true and the port is correct.

I thought it might be a TCP/IP problem but am sure that the -I for TCP/IP
connections is being passed in when starting postgres. pg_ctl is working

If you run psql when postgres is stopped you get the expected error.
The only command I can run is
c:\>psql -V
all other options in psql result in this 'server closed the connection
unexpectedly' error.

Is their something that I am doing wrong, overlooked or not checked?
