    Unanswered: Unable to restore backup file.


    I have a taken a backup of database on postgres 8.3.6 installed using exe setup.

    Now we have requirement to use msi setup same version postgres.

    But now some table are not getting restored.

    Error produced at the time of restore is:
    pg_restore: [archiver (db)] COPY failed: ERROR: character 0xc29d of encoding "UTF8" has no equivalent in "WIN1252"

    But the same db is getting restored properly on exe setup of postgres properly..

    Please help...

    It seems you have initialized the database cluster with the wrong encoding (Win1252) when using the msi installer (and your original db was initialized using UTF8)
