Installation troubleshooting for Windows v14
If you encounter difficulty displaying Java-based server features (controls or text not being displayed correctly, or blank windows), upgrading to the latest
libxcb-xlib libraries should correct the problem on most distributions. See the Java bug database for other possible workarounds.
Authentication errors from component modules during unattended installations may indicate that the specified values of
--superpassword may be incorrect.
If you encounter an error during the installation process, exit the installation, and ensure that your version of Windows is up-to-date. After applying any outstanding operating system updates, re-invoke the EDB Postgres Advanced Server installer.
If an installation fails to complete due to existing content in the data directory, the server writes an error message to the server logs:
A data directory is neither empty, or a recognisable data directory.
If you encounter a similar message, confirm that the data directory is empty; the presence of files (including the system-generated
lost+found folder) prevents the installation from completing. Either remove the files from the data directory, or specify a different location for the data directory before re-invoking the installer to complete the installation.
