    Make sure windows is fully updated until 'No New Important Updates are Found' (this may require multiple restarts and multiple 'check for updates'), including Internet Explorer (even if you use a different web browser).

    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:
    Code:
    net user postgres /del
    3) Reboot PC
    4) after reboot open cmd.exe again & run following commands:
    Code:
    net user postgres postgrespass /add
    net localgroup Administrators postgres /add
    net localgroup Users postgres /delete
    runas /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 (http://get.enterprisedb.com/postgres...-1-windows.exe) & move (copy/paste) it from the \Downloads folder to C:\
    6) in new cmd window for postgres user run following commands:
    Code:
    cd c:\
    start postgresql-8.4.22-1-windows.exe

    Hi udbrky (Chris)

    I have the same problem as lcartaxo, so I did what you said, but lines of code make mistakes

    Code:
    net localgroup Administrators postgres /add
    net localgroup Users postgres /delete
    Regards

    EDIT : ok, i solved my problem by installing the latest version PostgreSQL postgresql-11.1-windows-x64.exe

    Anyone else with these problems please try the following:

    Try installing PostgreSQL from this link - http://www.holdemmanager.com/downloads/postgres84


    Then install HM2 again from the same file you already downloaded and it should install without issue. Once installed you will probably get prompted for a beta update. If you have any problems auto updating open your Windows Task Manager to the Processes tab and right-click - 'End Task' on the Holdem Manager process and click the 'Retry' button on the installer prompt.

    If you continue to have problems, please duplicate the issue and send us log files with a detailed description of what you were doing and what problems you were experiencing:
    - Open Windows Event Viewer's (Control Panel - System & Security - Administrative Tools or Start - Search - 'Event Viewer') - Windows Logs - Applications.
    - Check for any errors and send the information (Save All Events As...).
    - Please send your \HM2Logs folder files as well.


    When sending any files please zip them (right-click - send to - compressed folder) before attaching them to an email. If the attachment is larger than 10MB please upload them to a file hosting site like dropbox, then right-click - 'copy dropbox link' and paste the download link directly into the support ticket email. If you have any problems with dropbox try using filedropper.com
