Microsoft Windows 2008 R2


The installation fails on Windows 2008 R2.

An empty dialogbox will be presented, which only allows to select [no] or [yes].


This is caused by the default Microsoft Password policy on the system.

The installation of PostgreSql will create a user (postgres), which will be created with the same password as used for the idmadmin user.

Using a valid password for idmadmin, will allow the installation to finish.
