When i open the HM i get this message:

"the following error occured: its not possible to read data from the transport conection: an existing connection was closed by the remote host"

I translated this from portuguese.. hope its correct.
what should i do? i cant re install the postgreSQL

i followed faq #171 but at the end , when i run HM i get this error
"the following error occurred when trying to open the database: failed to establish connection to 127.0.0.1"


i then followed faq #34
when i Go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services
and i Scroll to PostgreSQL Database Server to make sure it’s started, i cant find it. the PostgreSQL Database Server is not there.

i dont know what to do..

please help

That means it is probably not actually installed.

Is it listed under Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs (Programs and Features on Vista)?

If not, you probably need to reinstall SQL. You will want to delete the postgresuser.

Vista: Turn off UAC - http://www.holdemmanager.net/faq/afmviewfaq.aspx?faqid=73

Turn off Windows Firewall for installing HM and PostgreSQL. Once you get those installed you can add exceptions to the firewall. If you have a 3rd party firewall, uninstall it completely before installing HM/SQL - http://www.holdemmanager.net/faq/afmviewfaq.aspx?faqid=171

For uninstalling SQL please follow these steps:

1) Uninstall PostgreSQL from the Windows Control Panel.
2) manually delete the Program Files\Postgresql folders
3) run the command - start > run > cmd >

net user postgres /delete
4) reboot.


You should check if you have a \postgresql\8.x\data folder. That contains your database.


If you find your \data folder, these are the instructions to reinstall using the same DB.

If you do not have a \data folder, these are the instructions for a clean install.

If you have Vista, please verify that UAC is still off. - http://www.holdemmanager.net/faq/afmmain.aspx?faqid=73. If it is on, please turn it off and reboot.

Turn off Windows Firewall. Once you get SQL working you can add exceptions to the firewall. If you have a 3rd party firewall, uninstall it completely for now - http://www.holdemmanager.net/faq/afmviewfaq.aspx?faqid=171
