Unable to install TimescaleDB Extension on PostgreSQL v13.7

Good afternoon,

I’m unable to install TimescaleDB Extension on PostgreSQL v13.7.

ERROR: could not load library “C:/Program Files/PostgreSQL/13/lib/timescaledb-2.11.2.dll”: The specified module could not be found.

TimescaleDB Version used: https://github.com/timescale/timescaledb/releases/latest/download/timescaledb-postgresql-13-windows-amd64.zip

PostgreSQL Version used: v13.7

OS Version: Windows Server 2016, 64-bit (based on Windows 10)


I’ve been reading through several posts related with this topic, and so far I’ve tried to:

  • Move the ssleay32.lib to the PostgreSQL/bin folder
  • Move the libeay32.lib to the PostgreSQL/bin folder
  • Install POSTGIS v3.3.2
  • Restarted the PostgreSQL server
  • Move the libcrypto-1_1-x64.dll to the PostgreSQL/lib folder
  • Move the libssl-1_1-x64.dll to the PostgreSQL/lib folder

Can you please help?

Hi @rfonseca, it seems a bug: [Bug]: could not load library "C:/Program Files/PostgreSQL/15/lib/timescaledb-2.11.1.dll": The specified module could not be found. · Issue #5879 · timescale/timescaledb · GitHub

Postgresql and Windows can work or be incompatible in several versions. If you have access to run on docker, I think this is the shortest path to get it running. Or try timescale cloud.
