    Default Won't start service

    Been having problems with HM. Recently installed it on new PC. Had problems with license, then got that sorted. Now I can't start the Postgres Service. If I try to start HM it just says it can't connect, attempts to start service, and then cannot.

    When I try to start it manually it takes a while and then fails. Most recent message is that it started and then stopped as it had no work to do. Any ideas how I can get this working?

    1. Reboot your computer
    2. If that doesn't help look for the hidden system file postmaster.pid in the postgresql data folder, delete it and reboot your computer again.
    3. Check the postgresql service in the windows services (control panel->administration). Sometimes it helps to change the Logon As.. to "local system account"
    4. Check our FAQ:
