If you are using the embedded database, the PostgreSQL® database is installed and initialed during the installation.

Accessing the database

Prior to accessing a PostgreSQL® database, you must set the proper code page for Windows® platforms.

The Windows console windows use a different encoding than the rest of the system, so you must take special care when using 8-bit characters within psql. If psql detects a problematic console code page, it generates a warning at startup.

Examples of cases when you must run this command include:
