    Default Database Control Panel

    Server name: 127.0.0.1
    Port number: 5432
    Login: Postgres
    Password: Postgrespass

    After I click connect, a "Db control panel" screen pops up and says:

    A connection to PostgreSQL could not be made. Would you like Holdem Manager attempt to start the service?

    If I click Yes, it says "Sorry Holdem Manager was unable to start the service." And if I click No, it says the same.

    I have downloaded and installed postgreSQL. Also, I have Vista.

    Please help asap!

    These issues are due to your antivirus/firewall etc blocking PostgreSQL connecting to the database, if you follow those FAQ exactly it almost always solves the problem, for the few that it dosent solve its probbably a really tricky issue so it might be better to try the PostgreSQL forums for assistance
