Don't touch your Holdemmanager installation - its just a postgresql problem:

1. Reboot your computer
2. If that doesn't help look for the hidden system file postmaster.pid in the postgresql data folder, delete it and reboot your computer again.
3. Check the postgresql service in the windows services (control panel->administration). Sometimes it helps to change the Logon As.. to "local system account"
4. Check our FAQ:

there seems to be a problem when i instal the software. towards the end of instalation a box pops up "please wait while windows config microsoft visual c++2005 redistributale" then error 1935 appears. i have search for postgres on my comp and cant find it anywhere. im wondering if it aint installing postgres on my comp.
