#1781: Window installer freezes with blank password
 Reporter:  realityexists  |       Owner:  pramsey      
     Type:  defect         |      Status:  new          
 Priority:  medium         |   Milestone:  PostGIS 2.0.1
Component:  postgis        |     Version:  2.0.x        
 Keywords:                 |  
 Run the Windows installer for 2.0.0, PostgreSQL 9.1, 32-bit and leave the
 password blank for the postgres user when prompted. If the actual password
 is not blank the installer freezes at "Checking for existing PostGIS
 installation...". I can see in Process Explorer that it's running
 "C:\Program Files (x86)\PostgreSQL\9.1\bin\psql.exe"  -d
 template_postgis_20 -U postgres -h localhost -c "SELECT version();"

 which is probably trying to prompt for a password, but doesn't have any
 visible window. Even the cancel button is disabled, so I had to kill
 psql.exe to abort.
