Greeetings, I just installed OpenERP on Windows 7 and now have a new user account. Unable to access this account - was never given the password or prompted to enter one. What is this account and does anybody know what the password is? Thanks

I've seen the same thing ie a new Windows User Account named openpgsvc.

Searching the intertubez (there's not too much info about this) I've found the login password, which works for me, as 0p3npgsvcPWD

NB the first character is a zero.

I've logged in and out as openpgsvc, not altered anything, and OpenERP works on my user account as before, as you'd expect.

Not sure why the user/process/service account is there though, at a guess it's something to do with Postgres.

Hi Paul, Thanks for the post - the password you provided in your comment works for me. I will just leave the account alone - my regular log in works fine.
