the reason you cannot check option postgresql is that postgresql is already installed. on your windows (if this is not at least postgresql 9, uninstall old version and install postgresql 9 (if you can't, modify postgresql port for version 9 and change in openerp server conf file with this new port for option db_port))

Then, in program list run pgadminIII (if not present, install it) and create new postgresql rôle with name openpgand openpgpwd as password (default role name and password when you install allinone), and you could connect openerp to postgresql.

verify in you openerp server conf file that openpg and openpgpwd are well defined for options db_user and db_password.

restart openerp server


thanks GEM, i put information below.
