I was able to reproduce the above problem by doing the following:
$ chmod g-x,o-x /usr/bin/postgres.exe

What is the output of the following?
$ ls -l /usr/bin/postgres.exe
-rwxrw-rw- 1 Administ Domain U 2708992 Jun 10 08:13 /usr/bin/postgres.exe
If it is the same as or similar to the above (i.e., missing group and/or
other execute permissions), then do the following to fix your
$ chmod +x /usr/bin/postgres.exe
Does this solve your problem?

But, the really question is why did your permissions get whacked if my
WAG is correct?
