    The database sounds like it is corrupted and that error when creating a new database indicates to me that your entire PostgreSQL installation is likely damaged beyond repair and any new databases you create will likely be corrupted also.

    a) 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).

    Which Operating System, Firewall, and Anti-Virus are you using? Many of those free Norton, Mcaffee, Comodo, Zonealarm, Avira, Avast, AVG, Bitdefender, etc, 'internet security' bundles can cause communication issues between Holdem Manager and PostgreSQL.

    Please do the following steps, so we can get your computer to a state that we know will work with Holdem Manager and we can rule out it being a security software issue:

    1) Uninstall any 3rd party security software bundles completely. Disabling them never fully disables them and they will continue to prevent communication in the background.
    2) Reboot your computer
    3) Enable Windows Firewall's recommended settings through your Control Panel, turn off Windows Defender, and add firewall exceptions for HM and SQL -
    4) Enable Windows Firewall's recommended settings through your Control Panel, turn off Windows Defender (unless you are using Windows 10, in which case it should be enabled), and add firewall exceptions for HM and SQL -
    5) Install Microsoft Security Essentials (unless you are using Windows 10) for antivirus/malware protection and update it -

    Please see the following guides for postgres related issues if you have further issues after installing.

    When installing, you may encounter an error referring to the database initialization. If so follow this part of the FAQ below:

    For other security software see here:

    b) If none of that helps:

    1) Uninstall PostgreSQL from the Windows Control Panel.

    2) Delete the \PostgreSQL\X.x\data folder that is left behind.

    3) Delete the sub-folder(s) in c:\users\username\appdata\roaming\HoldemManager\Da tabase (XP - c:\documents and settings\username\application data\HoldemManager\Database).

    4) run the command - start > programs > accessories > command prompt > right-click > run as administrator

    net user postgres /delete

    After you click 'Enter' for the code above also do that same for this code:

    sc delete postgresql-8.4

    and click 'Enter' again.

    5) Restart your PC

    6) Install PostgreSQL 9.3 from

    7) Once installed you should disable the postgresql logging as instructed here -

    If there is still an issue, we need to know the error - it is in the %Temp% folder - bitrockinstaller.txt file. *If you can't see it, turn off the windows option that is hiding that directory.

    Thumbs up

    I just uninstalled PostgreSQL and installed PostgreSQL 9.3. Seems to work correctly now. Thanks for quick response, wish the best.
