Windows Vista 64, fully updated.
No Security software, Windows defender and Windows firewall disabled. I even added the .exes you advised to the exception list before disabling the firewall.
After installing HEM and SQL with the combo installer I'm getting the error: "Sorry, could not install PostgreSQL." If I click on details I'm getting the following information: "Connection to database failed: --> could not connect to server: Connection refused (...Is the server running on host "127.0.0.1" and accepting TCP/IP connections on port 5432? <-- error"
I tried installing postgres and HEM seperatly, that did not allow me to connect to postgres either, giving me the same error (did a clean uninstall of postgres after this).
I've been using HEM and Postgres for ~3 years now and this is the first time I have a problem with postgresql. The only thing that changed in my computer is that I now have two HDDs instead of one.
Any idea how to fix this?
