    Default Cant Install HM2

    I have a pretty new laptop, using windows 10, but whenever I try to install, it can't install the PostgreSQL and get an error message 'An error occured executing the Microsoft VC + + runtime installer.'

    Uninstall PostgreSQL & try the following steps:

    1) Run cmd.exe as Admin (Start > Search 'cmd' > Right-Click > Run As Admin)
    2) in CMD window run (type the code then hit Enter key) following command:
    net user postgres /del
    3) Reboot PC
    4) after reboot open cmd.exe again & run following commands:
    PHP Code:
    net user postgres postgrespass /add
     net localgroup Administrators postgres 
     net localgroup Users postgres 
    /user:postgres cmd.exe 
    When it asks about password please input postgrespass & don`t worry if you don`t see any new symbols\inputs in cmd window. If you did all steps right then you should get new cmd window for postgres user.

    5) Download PostgreSQL installer ( & move (copy/paste) it from the \Downloads folder to C:\
    6) in new cmd window for postgres user run following commands:
    cd c:\
    start postgresql-8.4.22-1-windows.exe
