ODBC and PostgreSQL Error "CAST(timeofday() AS timestamp)

Possible Solution(s)

Go to e.g. c:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\9.3\share\timezonesets

Edit the file "Default" in a text editor, adding your timezone (as in the 'timezone') field in postgresql.conf). So e.g. for South Africa, open "Africa.txt" and copy/paste the "CAT" timezone definition into the "Default" file. (You might also need to edit the 'timezone' field in postgresql.conf, e.g. set it to "Africa/Harare" as one of the CAT timezones.)

Restart the PostgreSQL server service (or 'reload configuration')

If it still doesn't work, check both the PostgreSQL logs for clues, and if on Windows, check the Windows "Event logs", as some PostgreSQL errors log there.
