I want to recover a poastgres database created under linux (suse as far as I can remember) encoded with Latin1.
So I installed Postgres under Windows 7 without knowing the restrictions according the encoding under windows.
I know that it is possible even under windows 7 to configure the server to use latin1 encoding.
But after installing postgres the first time, i never again got the chance to configure the encoding. I tried to uninstall and reinstall postgres several times. Allways with the same result. I never again got the chance to configure the server to use latin1.
where i´m wrong? whats my failure?
After uninstalling I searched all partitions for postgres related files and deleted all found files. Also I searched the whole registry for postgres related entries and deleted all found entries. Allways with the same result: After installing postgres there was bo chance to configure the server!
