how do I configure postgresql for PT3

I've finally been able to download Beta 17 but now when i try to open it I get a window entitled "Configure Postrgresql Server" with the password blank

I type in dbpass into the box and hit "connect" and I get a warning that says
"unable to Connect to this database. Please check the configuration".

When I click 'ok' nothing happens and the original window with "Configure Postrgresql Server" is still open.

So then I hit "Cancel" instead of "connect" and I get a message that says "Are you sure you want to cancel?. Pokertracker won't be able to operate without Postrgresql installed and configured"

I click on "yes" (because "no" does nothing) and I get a window that says "Fatal Error - Pokertracker cannot operate without Postgresql"

I click "ok' and it goes through the exit process of closing pokertracker.

I just want this program to work for me because I want to register but I don't know if it will ever work the way things are going.

PLEASE HELP

Re: how do I configure postgresql for PT3

Have you got PostgreSQL installed? Did you download the version of PT3 WITH PostgreSQL included? Do you have a PostgreSQL folder under Start -> Programs? If not, please make sure that you download PT3 Beta 17 WITH PostgreSQL available on the Download Page.

Re: how do I configure postgresql for PT3

Do you mean you had it installed before you came to install PT3?
You will need to make sure that the user "postgres" is set up, and then PT3 should just work with it.
See the end of the Database / Postgres FAQ.

I've tried everything I know. I have tried to uninstall it to start again but it doesn't even allow me to do that.

I've followed the links to the FAQ's you recommend. The question at the end you refer me to is too technical for me. i have tried to follow what it says regarding creating a postgres user but I don't know what it means.....where do i enter that "code: select all" info.

Please explain to me as if I know nothing about all this......because i don't !........and I'm extremely frustrated.

I'm now trying to uninstall everything and starting again.....but I can't figure out how to remove the program altogether......??????????????

Re: how do I configure postgresql for PT3

Click Start --> Programs --> PostgreSQL --> Start Services to make sure PostgreSQL is running.

Then try putting in this information: Server: localhost
Port: 5432
User: postgres
Password: dbpass

If that doesn't work, follow the steps of this How-To to remove the requirement for a password and try again.

If you get a specific error please post it. If you haven't configured your PostgreSQL server in any custom fashion that should be sufficient. You may also want to try disabling any firewalls to make sure they aren't causing problems for PostgreSQL.
