Installed SQL Server unintentionally, tried to remove it and got some errors on edge

Hi,
So here is my problem. My father had problems on his computer so I lend him mine. He installed on my laptop a software called TX3 Configurator. By installing this software it also installed SQL Server.

Since my father didn't needed my computer anymore, I removed the software (TX3 Configurator) but it didn't removed SQL Server with it. I went in Apps and features and uninstall it "manually".

Today i tried to do stuff for school and went on this website https://simulator.electude.com/ and this message appeared in the top left corner :



Warning: pg_connect(): Unable to connect to PostgreSQL server: could not connect to server: No such file or directory Is the server running locally and accepting connections on Unix domain socket "/var/run/postgresql/.s.PGSQL.5432"? in /home/dba_man/simulator/site/db.php on line 18

Warning: pg_query_params() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /home/dba_man/simulator/site/db.php on line 50



Can someone help me ? I only use my laptop for basic stuff like school and games. Right now everything else seems to work, I only can't connect to the electude simulator ( a website i need to go on for school/learn )

Laptop:
Thinkpad Lenovo X140e
4 GB RAM
Windows 10

Thank you in advance ! Also sorry if i have a lot of mistakes English isn't my first language.
Here is what was installed on my computer (TX3 was already removed at this moment)

It is probably a problem of that site, not related to manipulations made on your computer. Their software works on other machines. Probably you should inform the Support of that site.

I get the same error message when I go that site and press the "Try out the Electude Simulator". As Viorel says, this is a problem that site, and you would need to contact them for help.

PostgresSQL is a different product than SQL Server. They are the same kind of products - they are both relational database management systems, but they are entirely unrelated. And in this case, they are not even on the same machine.

If you want to uninstall SQL Server from your machine, you can right-click and select uninstall. There may be remnants that you need to uninstall separately. However, this will not resolve the issue with the Electude simulator, which apparently is broken.

Hi @Hockeygirl04-9461,

Warning: pg_connect(): Unable to connect to PostgreSQL server: could not connect to server: No such file or directory Is the server running locally and accepting connections on Unix domain socket "/var/run/postgresql/.s.PGSQL.5432"? in /home/dba_man/simulator/site/db.php on line 18

This error message is related to PostgreSQL server, not MS SQL server? SQL server general tag that talking about issues about MS SQL Server.

For issues about PostgreSQL server, suggest you post issue to PostgreSQL Forum to get better help, or https://www.postgresql.org/community/.
