    Under Vista and Windows 7 make sure UAC is disabled http://www.holdemmanager.net/faq/afm....aspx?faqid=73 and/or holdemmanager.exe and hmhud.exe are started as administrator. Run the windows explorer and navigate to your Holdemmanager installation directory. Right click the holdemmanager.exe and the hmhud.exe executable and select "Run as admin" from the popup menu.

    Please update to the latest beta - http://www.holdemmanager.com/downloads/HmBetaUpdate.exe


    First try try this:

    Start > Programs > PostgreSQL > 8.x > Stop Service

    Start > Programs > PostgreSQL > 8.x > Start Service

    Add exceptions to the windows firewall, even if it is off. If you have a 3rd party firewall, uninstall it completely before installing HM/SQL - http://www.holdemmanager.net/faq/afm...aspx?faqid=171

    Please try following all of these FAQs, step by step:

    1) http://www.holdemmanager.net/faq/afm....aspx?faqid=34

    Windows updates should not change any of your firewall settings. They do occasionally turn UAC back on without you knowing it. If you leave UAC on and run HM and HMHUD as administrator, then that shouldnt affect you.
