> The following bug has been logged online:
> Bug reference: 3530
> Logged by:
> Email address: irek_m(at)poczta(dot)fm
> PostgreSQL version: 8.1
> Operating system: Windows XP
> Description: Can't start as service if sb created 'c:\program' file
> I've installed PostgreSQL in 'c:\program files'. Some buggy program created
> file named 'c:\program', and what? PostgreSQL doesn't start!
> This error is due to Windows's stupid rules of resolving executable names.
> You've added registry entry ImagePath=c:\program files\Postgre
> SQL\bin\pg_ctl.exe ...
> Now Windows tries to execute c:\program, if not found - c:\program
> files\Postgre, and so on, until reaches the end of string.
> pg_ctl.exe when registering the service should quote this name:
> ImagePath="c:\program files\Postgre SQL\bin\pg_ctl.exe".
> But even this doesn't solve the problem, pg_ctl.exe starts postgres.exe, and
> probably you haven't used quotations again in CreateProcess invocation. So
> there are at least two bugs with lack of "..." in pg_ctl.exe.
> If the server started not using net start, but manually (using postgres.exe
> -D "..."), everything works ok, so postgres.exe probably doesn't have this
