I am facing this strange problem where my postgres service couldn't start because of some missing dll files in installation directory's bin folder.
I copied files from other machine and it start working again. After some time the same problem appeared again on system reboot.
I have no idea what causes these files to be deleted automatically. Please help if anyone has faced this kind of situation.
I' m using version 9.0 on Windows 7
Probably the same issue as in "[GENERAL] Tablespace files deleted during continuous run", or at least very similar in nature.
* Check that you don't have anti-virus software that (correctly or incorrectly) identified those dll's as infected with a virus and removed them.
* Check that your file-system is undamaged.
* Check that windows hasn't been restoring a checkpoint with those dll's not installed.
If the database wasn't installed on a local file-system, check that the remote file-system is functioning properly and doesn't cache an old state or something similarly silly.
Postgres doesn't remove any dll's, so it's some external factor at play here.
Screwing up is an excellent way to attach something to the ceiling.
