postmaster is a symlink:
$ tar -tvzf postgresql-7.1-2.tar.gz | fgrep postmaster
lrw-r--r-- jt/Domain Users 0 2001-04-16 09:00:44 usr/bin/postmaster -> postgres.exe
Are you trying to run it from cmd.exe/command.com? If so, then you must
do something like the following:
C:\> bash -c "postmaster -D /usr/share/postgresql/data"
Did you extract the binary distributions with something like WinZip?
If so, then the symlink was destroyed.
In bash, you can recreate with:
$ rm /usr/bin/postmaster
$ ln -s postgres.exe /usr/bin/postmaster
or in cmd.exe/command.com:
C:\> attrib +s C:\Cygwin\bin\postmaster
assuming that you installed Cygwin in C:\Cygwin.
