Hello,
    I'm trying to get PostgreSQL running as a service on Windows and I'm having some issues getting the PostgreSQL system initialized.  I've got the IPC daemon running, ipctest seems to work (it's not reporting any errors) and I'm running it from the PostgreSQL user... in my case SRV_PostgreSQL.

    When I try to run initdb -D /usr/local/pgsql/data I get an error stating "IpcSemaphoreCreate: semget(key=1, num=17, 03600) failed: Function not implemented".  In checking the mailing lists the most common problem was the files in the /tmp directory or an outdated ipc-daemon program.  /tmp has been cleared (and the ipc-daemon program restarted from the Service Control window) and I'm using cygipc v 2.01.2 which I just updated today.

    Does anyone know what might be causing this?

Thanks
Kevin Schroeder
