" A version of pokertracker is already running"

I keep getting this message - PT3 does not show up on my task bar anywhere, If I go to task manager i see it under "processes" I close it.

when I try to open it from desktop nothing happens, try again and get the message above - what gives??

In task manager you need to use the Processes tab (not the Applications tab) to search for PokerTracker.exe and end it.

Re: " A version of pokertracker is already running"

I get the same error. Ending it from task manager doesn't help neither does rebooting my computer. Yesterday it worked fine but suddenly when i tried it today it didn't work. I run windows xp. The start screen where it says something like "poker tracker 3 for holdem" doesn't appear. When i tried to stop and then start postgres service again (something i have to do every time to get pt3 running) the window says: "The PostgreSQL Database Server 8.3 service is starting............................" but nothing happens. Only more dots come. Kinda strange. It has never done that before. Thanks for the help!

Please click Start --> Control Panel --> Administrative Tools, open the Event Viewer and look in the Application folder. Do you see any errors for postgres on the right side? If so, double click on them and tell me what they say as that will explain things.

Re: " A version of pokertracker is already running"

no. there's no errors for postgres. Everything seems to work fine there. My f-secure updated itself today and i think after that my pt3 nor postgres hasn't worked properly. Just wondering if it could be because of that?

Re: " A version of pokertracker is already running"

I finally got the upgrade to download - now when i try to open PT3 it says warning you need to run as administrator. However I AM RUNNING AS ADMIN. i click let me continue. and I get a scond screen warning me not to continue without running as admin. I ignore it and try to start the program then get the "a version is already running"

I am completely irritated and $45 for HM is looking pretty good at this point if I cannot get this resolved.

Re: " A version of pokertracker is already running"

I also get these two warnings when i shut down my comp. They are in event viewer under userenv.

Windows saved user (computer name) registry while an application or service was still using the registry during log off. The memory used by the user's registry has not been freed. The registry will be unloaded when it is no longer in use.

This is often caused by services running as a user account, try configuring the services to run in either the LocalService or NetworkService account.

And

Windows cannot unload your classes registry file - it is still in use by other applications or services. The file will be unloaded when it is no longer in use.

Friend of mine said he had the same problem few months ago. He said he just reinstalled both postgresql and poker tracker3. Now it's working fine for him. Remember to take copy of the hand histories though

Re: " A version of pokertracker is already running"

I have a similiar problem sometimes with vista, but only if I try to start pokertracker while online. If I start it while offline it starts up fine.
Dunno if it's the same thing, but hope this helps.
