    Unanswered: Postgres thows error while installing

    While trying to install postgres in my system it throws a error "problem running post-install step.Installation may not complete successfully. Failed to start the database server". The error throws when trying to install in the default location (Programfiles\postgres.....). If i try to install in a different location it installs successfully.

    Kindly help me out, becoz i need to install it in the default location.

    We need details. I'm only assuming since you failed to note the O.S. but it's some version of Windows. can you check your logs and see whats failing? Can you post a screenshot or a more detailed error message? You basically just posted "Help - can't install PostgreSQL. I get errors. What is your role on the machine? Disk space?
