I think it's a problem with cygipc and security, i will fix it later. For
now, i just
avoid to start cygipc-daemon as a service... maybe you can mention this
problem in the README file
of cygwin-postgres distrib. If you have "ZeroProc..." something when you try
to open
a database, maybe you should try to *not* launch cygipc-daemon as a

TCL-8.0 is now part of the cygwin distribution. Unfortunatly,  I tried to
postgres with tcl support, but it seems that tcl > 8.0 is required. It seems
postgres requires some functions (Tcl_CreateFilewithHandler or
something like that...) that are not part of tcl-8.0.

Anyway, it's possible to start pgacces by downloading it from
It comes with precompiled binaries of libpgtcl.dll and libpq.dll. You have
copy and rename dll provided in this package in win32/dll (choose dll for
postgres 7.0 and tcltk 8.3 and copy it somewhere in your path as
libpgtcl.dll and libpq.dll)

User has to install tcl/tk 8.3.

Update the pgaccess file in the root of distribution to find the
"wish83.exe" program

That's it, it works... but it's just a walk around until tcltk8.3 will be
available with cygwin...
