Installation of PostgreSQL on Windows XP

P: 1
I am trying to install PostgreSQL 8.2 on Windows XP. I get the message " The Port already in use" during installation and installation stops. When I stop the process related to Quick Heal (Anti-Virus Software) through Task Manager, the installation messaghe changed to "The data base directory is not empty". Even I uninstalled Quick Heal & Quick Heal Fire Wall, the message is same.

Please let me know, if I can change port number from 5432 to something else for PostgreSQL data base. As port 5432 has been alloted internationally to PostgreSQL, how some other programme can use it. Please help

Sounds like you created a postgre account, use admin tools -> computer management and see if you have postgre account. Delete that account and try again. I would also go to the postgre directory and delete the whole directory. Good luck.
