Hello, I want to reinstall postgreSQL. I uninstaled via control panel and then try to run the installer. I get error meesage that the service name postgresql 8.4 already exists, try diffrernt name. But I don't know how to change the name, it does not give any field to enter it. So I go to services and see there still exists postgre 8.4 service.
I google and found the command how to delete:
sc delete postgresql-8.4
I run this command and I get :
[SC] OpenService FAILED 5:
Access is denied.
can you help me delete the service so I could reinstall?
Actually what I wanted to do at first is to recover the database from another hard drive of dead computer. So I read tutorial that I need to reinstal the posgresql. At first I tried to just stop the service, put data folder from old disk to new instalation, but that did not work out, the service was not able to start.
