I downloaded the installation file on I have Windows 10. As soon as I click on the installer of PostgreSQL, I face an issue: Image of the error

Image of the version of Windows Do somebody know where to look for the solution? Thanks. I tried tens of ways, nothing helps. I tried to make some some changes in Windows log files, I changed user, I tried to open through the administrator rights and others ways.

Move to _and_ use `[postgres]` instead of the other db tags.

Postgres needs to change their installer. There's better ways to grant permissions to a file than using a command line executable which is subject to the vagaries of regional settings. Speaking of that, you may want to include what release of Windows 10 (English/Russian/etc), and if the Language for non-Unicode programs is set.

yes, I can't install trough command prompt as well. Sorry, where should I include the release of Windows 10 and Where should I change the language in my PC? Is it in language settings? I have english set there everywhere. Thanks

I suppose this is actually not just "language", but all the regional preferences, a.k.a. "the locale". The decimals point, for example, is "." in some locales and "," in another; date formatting differs, and so on. Poorly written installers could choke on some of those differences. // And, to be honest, Postgres performance in Windows seems to be *mediocre*. Just tested that. Same HW, same workload, when Postgres is running in Linux, we achieved overall 60% more (not all attributed to Postfix, but still it has its share in this).

Thanks, I understand that I need choose English, not Ukrainin while reinstalling windows. Becuase on another computer where English was from the start, the installation works fine.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
