PostgreSQL is not installed on your system . if it is them there is no user call OpenERP on that or the password in openerp-server.conf is not matching with the password of OpenERP user on postgresql

Postgres isn't running, or has some odd configuration issues? Check your running processes for psql.exe or postgres.exe. If it's running, your database password is probably wrong. The all-in-one installer for Windows is a bit unreliable in my experience. Try uninstalling everything completely and starting from scratch with a new download of the latest version if you're not getting anywhere?

(I'd advise against running the server on Windows at all, personally.)

+1 "(I'd advise against running the server on Windows at all, personally.)" - you will get better performance running an Ubuntu VM on Windows.
