I've got a new PC and my sql database is on my data hard drive so I've got it with me. The last time I had to re install HM I simply followed this tutorial:
FAQ - Hold'em Manager Poker Tracking Software :: Move Database to Another Hard Drive or Partition
which is great but this time the postgre service doesn't start when I change the path to the directory with the old database. I noticed that in the screens of the tutorial it is talking about version 8.3 and now I have 8.4 on my PC. The only reason I can think of for why it might not be working is incompatible versions but it hasn't been that long since my last update before this one so it seems weird.
When I restore the path to the default setting in the registry the service starts as normal and so does HM. This is the reg entry after I change the path:
C:/Program Files (x86)/PostgreSQL/8.4/bin/pg_ctl.exe runservice -N "postgresql-8.4" -D "F:\P\PostgreSQLData\data" -w
I copied the path from the explorer so don't see where it's going wrong.
I'm using Windows7 64 but that's exactly what I have been using...
