postgres is another possible password.

Are you stuck at the postgres installation or what is your problem?

So please bare with me. Ok so on my windows 7 start up screen, the user postgres accepted the password postgres. Then I get a message of an error while reading the config/HoldemManager.config file. Access to the path C:/Program Files (x86)/RVG Software?HoldemManager/Config/HoldemManager.Config' is denied.
Holdem Manager will now backup the old config file and create a new one for you. After I click OK I get a message from window of Microsoft.NETFramework saying, Unhandled exception has occurred in your application. If you click continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click quit, the the application will close immediately. I click continue, HoldemManager window pops up starts to "validate" and goes nowhere from there.

For W7 and Vista you must set \holdem manager\dbcontrolpanel.exe, holdemmanager.exe and hmhud.exe are started as administrator. Run the windows explorer and navigate to your Holdemmanager installation directory. Right click the executables and select properties... then select "Run as admin" from the compatibility tab.
