    Thumbs down Unanswered: Installing on Win 2K Pro



    PostgreSQL on Win 2K



    I have downloaded and unzipped the version 8 .msi files.

    one is around 58K, the other 17M.

    Running the smaller one starts the install wizard, presenting
    a pick your language dialog. Ok so far.

    Then the disaster happens

    Clicking on the start button causes the process to abort within 1 second
    with an error/truth dialog stating "wrapper failed to get SourceDir property!".

    Does anybody have any ideas on this?
    Thanks in advance.

    mancini,

    as helpful as your reply is

    I have 4 different 'downloaded' versions of PostgreSQL v8.0

    (3 rc5 sets and 1 official)

    All give the same result.

    I think there maybe some sort of permission denial occurring in W2K,
    but as yet I have not found it.

    MaxDB, MySQL, Firebird and Oracle all installed and ran without a problem,
    Ingres and PostgreSQL had problems crashing after the first install
    dialog - hence I would say to me they are useless.

    The proof of the software's worth is when it works.

    regards

    heh , i just wanted to point out that the 8.0 stable msi release works for me
    that means that it might work for others , and it might only not work for you

    see it is realy dependant on the host operating system and in the end that is what does not work for you , and like you say is its worth
