Michael, please post a little bit more information. What you've provided isn't enough to really help you.
Please copy/paste the entire contents of the console when you run TabJolt so we can see what's going on. In addition, posting your config files is a good idea.
For #1, it sounds like you may have config file with a typo in it that makes it (not) well formed and impossible to read. For #2, it sounds like you didn't set the password for the TabJolt postgres database.
