When Cubit Estimating is installed there is also another program called PostgreSQL that gets installed alongside it, this program controls the Cubit Estimating database. If this program is not running or not installed correctly you may get this prompt. See below on how to resolve.


The PostgreSQL service is not running

When this program is installed, there is a service along with it, this service essentially dictates the connection between program and database.

1. To check if this program is running Right Click on the Windows Task Bar (This is the bar where programs appear when opened) and select Task Manager. This can also be opened by pressing Ctrl + Alt + Delete on your keyboard and selecting Task Manager.

Note: If this message occurs during installation contact support to assist with manually installing PostgreSQL.


Ensure that the software was installed as Single User (Standalone)

During the installation phase, ensure that Standalone was selected, if Multiuser or Advanced was selected, it may be possible that the software was installed in network mode which does require a username and password for login, giving you this prompt.
