Postby APerfect10 » Tue Aug 19, 2008 2:51 pm

If you are running Microsoft Vista or Windows 7, we highly recommend and it may be required for you to disable "User Account Control" (UAC) and then (re)-install PokerTracker and PostgreSQL.

Windows Vista
  1. Click your Start button and open the "Control Panel".
  2. Select "User Accounts and Family Safety.
    • Note: This step can be skipped if in Classic View
  3. Select "User Accounts".
  4. Click "Turn User Account Control on or off".
  5. Uncheck "Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer" then click OK.
  6. You must now restart your computer for the changes to take effect. Once your computer restarts, proceed with your PokerTracker and PostgreSQL installation.

Windows 7
  1. Click your Start button and open the "Control Panel".
  2. Select "User Accounts and Family Safety.
  3. Select "User Accounts
  4. Click "Change User Account Control settings".
  5. Drag the slider down to the bottom "Never notify" then click OK.
  6. You must now restart your computer for the changes to take effect. Once your computer restarts, proceed with your PokerTracker and PostgreSQL installation.
  • Note: You may or may not be able to re-enable UAC. If you do re-enable it, make sure that you are running PokerTracker as an administrator.
  • If you are interested in learning more about UAC please read the Wikipedia - User Account Control page.
