I have noticed some differences in installing the 8.1.3 server on windows.
We have been using the 6.1.3 server install and now are deploying the 8.1.3. Here are some difference.
Our installing for both 6 and 8 was to install in a folder outside of the programs file and in fact on a secondary local drive.
8.1.3 places files in the user appdata folder as if it was a runtime not a server. This does not make sense given the server is not associated with and may not run under the user the actually does the install.
8.1.3 is sporadic in installing the service for windows.
8.1.3 has issues connecting the our postgresql database. If we copy the libpq.dll from an 6.1 it seems to work. This does not make sense as the version of the libpq.dll is the same.
I have one server where it does not manage the mscvr120.dll and thus an error on launch.
Conclusion is the attempting to use the 8.1.3 for a server on windows is difficult to impossible.
Anyone using 8.1.3 as server on windows? If so is your experience better than ours?
