[GENERAL] problems with Win 2000

JC-2
Hi there,
 
1. As I have installed the PostgreSQL 8.0.2 in French, when I start "psql to template1" in console mode, I receive a message telling that my code page 850 is not the one of the application (1252) and consequently the display could be erroneous. It's true, all the accented characters on the console are replaced by cabalistic characters and I can't even read the help page.
 
It's also written that I have to see the reference page of psql called "Notes for Windows users". But I don't know where this page is to be found.Can you tell me how to find it ?
 
On the other hand, as I don't know how to set an other code page, can you tell me how can change the default code page at least for the console ?
 
I have also tried to do this in a batch file but it doesn't work:
 
MODE CON:CP SELECT 1252
"C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.0\bin\psql.exe"  -h localhost -p 5432 template1 "user_name"
 
2. If I try to start psql from the bin directory without opening the application with PgAdmin, I receive a message telling that I may not launch the application as I am logged as the administrator. But I don't know how to create a non-root user and how to start with it.
 
Thanks and regards.
 
Jacques.
