Hi All,

I'm new to this list.

I've set up postgreSQL on windows about 4 times since the first 8.x 
series came out.  The first time it was 8.0 beta3 IIRC.  I believe I've 
installed another in the 8.0 series, then a 8.1 then just a couple of 
weeks ago 8.2.4.  Every time I run into the same problem.  I get the 
thing to work, find out I have to hack a couple of conf files to allow 
the port to work and then when I close my machine, trying to restart the 
service fails. (I know a server isn't meant to be shutdown like a 
desktop machine, but I'm trying out PG on my desktop ...)

The only way I found to get rid of that problem is to reinitialize the 
password of the account that runs the service *every time I reboot my 
machine*.  Then I can start the service.  This is not only cumbersome, 
but it is outright dangerous.  I wonder why this happens.  I've 
installed a lot of software from the linux world as services (e.g.Zope) 
and I never encountered such problems.  How can I get rid of those issues ?

Sorry for the slightly whining tone of this email (I do like 
postgreSQL!), but I figured those types of issues had some time to 
settle since the 8.x series came out and they didn't.

TIA, from a user who wants to bring folks to postgreSQL on windows,

Yves Moisan
