Window installer freezes with blank password
|Reported by:||realityexists||Owned by:||pramsey|
Run the Windows installer for 2.0.0, PostgreSQL 9.1, 32-bit and leave the password blank for the postgres user when prompted. If the actual password is not blank the installer freezes at "Checking for existing PostGIS installation...". I can see in Process Explorer that it's running
"C:\Program Files (x86)\PostgreSQL\9.1\bin\psql.exe" -d template_postgis_20 -U postgres -h localhost -c "SELECT version();"
which is probably trying to prompt for a password, but doesn't have any visible window. Even the cancel button is disabled, so I had to kill psql.exe to abort.
