Solution: ("postgrespass" or "dbpass" are the common Passwords people forget)
Note: If migrating to Holdem Manager from a competitors product, the postgres password is more than likely "dbpass." If running the Holdem Manager installation, re-run the installation and use "dbpass" without quotes for the postgres password.
Note: If there are problems inside of Holdem Manager, please see the solution below.

- Open it with notepad.
- Scroll to the bottom and change all md5 references to trust.
- Save and close the file.
- Move the file back to the data folder.
- Restart the PostgreSQL service: Control Panel → Administrative Tools → Services
Holdem Manger and PostgreSQL will accept any password now.
