    Default Combo installer : Sorry, could not install PostgreSQL

    Windows XP Service Pack 3. Fresh install. No virus/malware/ad software/firewall/security programs. Turned off windows firewall,added exceptions and generally followed the given guide but to no avail. The combo installer reports "Sorry, could not install PostgreSQL" after clicking ok, the below message was displayed in the details window :

    try pass: postgres
    try pass: postgrespass
    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
    1
    testclient return status: 1
    ...
    ...
    ...
    try pass: postgres
    try pass: postgrespass
    Connection to database failed: -->server closed the connection unexpectedly
    This probably means the server terminated abnormally
    before or while processing the request.
    <--error


    How do i overcome this? please dont tell me its a firewall issue cause its not as its a fresh install and i have turned off windows firewall and automatic updates. I have using HEM for over a year and this has recently cropped up.

    Thanks

    Please download a postgresql installer from www.postgresql.org and try a standard installation of 8.4 or 8.3
