Since you want to run PostgreSQL as a NT service, the simplest solution
is to delete the symlink from postmaster to postgres.exe and copy
postgres.exe to postmaster.exe. After performing these operations,
PostgreSQL will be able to run from cmd, as an NT service (if wrapped
by something like srvany or invoker), and from bash. The only downside
is a little wasted disk space, but disk space is cheap and getting
I was actually thinking that may be the standard NT distribution should not
contain symlinks for this exact reason. What do others think?
