Re: stack builder install of pgagent fails

While installing pgagent via stackbuilder, once required files downloaded, it will pop up the pgagent installation window. There you have to provide the postgres/enterprisedb installation details and database cluster password is mandatory.

 

Please provide DB password and try again. Let us know if our understanding is incorrect regarding the issue you are facing and any help needed further.

That's just it, I see the popup from windows asking for permission for the install, then the EDP install splash graphic, then a popup with the error, no opportunity to input the password. Something did get installed, as it showed up in the windows apps list, so uninstalled it, and retried, and that seems to of done it. Must have been a corrupted install somewhere along the way.
