This is the exact behavior I'm seeing, using 7.3.2.  I followed the
steps in the README for installing everything, with the exception of the
data directory, which is slightly different.  My data dir does show up
	drwx------+   2 postgres None            0 Mar  4 19:00 pgdata
So, I'm guessing that it's not a permissions issue.  I'm able to start
postmaster from the command line as the postgres user.  The service just
fails to start, giving error 1062.  As you noted below, this is not
good.  Is there a known cause for this error and (hopefully) a solution?

I hope that you really executed the following:

    $ ipc-daemon --install-as-service
    $ cygrunsrv --install postmaster --path /usr/bin/postmaster --args
"-D /usr/share/postgresql/data -i" --dep ipc-daemon --termsig INT --user
postgres --shutdown
    $ cygrunsrv -S ipc-daemon # actually this step is optional
    $ cygrunsrv -S postmaster

Note the following:

    $ fgrep 1062 /usr/include/w32api/winerror.h 

which is not good. :.)
