    Cannot install psql


    Hi,

    After completing the installation of PostgreSql, failed to install other softwares via stack builder. Got the error: failed to open the application list. Would you please help me with installing psql so that I can load the sample database?

    Thanks,

    Breezy

    If your Postgres installation completed successfully, then psql is already installed. Look into the bin folder of the Postgres installation.
    I will not read nor answer questions where the SQL code is messy and not formatted properly using [code] tags.

    Hi guys. I can't seem to install postgresql either. I've used it for a long time but due to a problem I tried re-installing it. Since then, whatever I do I get the same error message: "failed to open psqlInit.exe". I have tried deleting everything that has to do with PSQL and the associated software, but I still can't re-install it. I have no idea what is wrong...

    Thank you very much for any help you can provide.
