For Windows Vista installation please review this forum posts
- PL/PGSQL language inclusion in the installation:

- Contrib modules screen:
You don't need to change the default selections:
Account Domain lookup failure¶
If you see this screen at the end of PostgreSQL installation, it is due to an incorrect Account domain in the Service configuration screen. By default the installer fills this value automatically, so if you have changed it, it may cause the installation to fail.
Redo the installation of PostgreSQL and leave Account domain in the Service configuration screen on the default value.
User account error¶
During the installation of PostgreSQL you may get an error saying:
Account @#$%@#$^@% doesn't exist
This error was encountered once with the OpenERP Complete Autoinstaller.
The problems seems to be that in order to install PostgreSQL automatically in silent mode, we create a new user account with the net.exe command, and in that particular case the system's security policy was too strict to allow a simple non privileged user to be added this way.
It could also fail if you are using Active Directory to manage the user accounts. In that case you should use the individual OpenERP Server, Client and PostgreSQL installers.
OpenERP Server Connection Error with PostgreSQL¶
Verify that you are using the username and password from the "Initialise database cluster" screen when launching OpenERP Server
If there's another problem similar to this situation:
You should have look if the service PostgreSQL is running in the Services manager (Control Panel : Administration tools - > Services)
You can edit the service configuration to have PostgreSQL starting as a service at system boot
Or you can start it manually every time from the programs menu.
If your PostgreSQL service is running, but you get connection errors, you can restart the service.
