I get the following message while installing PostgreSQL:
User 'postgres'could not be created: Access Denied.
Three solutions here
- This can be caused by UAC being ON in Windows 7 and Vista.
- You can run the attached .bat file to remove the PostgreSQL User name and reinstall PostgreSQL. .Bat File
- If you are installing PostgreSQL for a second time, you can just change the user postgres to "postgres1" and continue your installation too.
