The above seems to imply that /etc/passwd and /etc/group were not
created correctly.  Does the PgSQL731wina1.exe installer execute the
following?

    mkpasswd -l >/etc/passwd
    mkgroup -l >/etc/group

The above seems to imply that either PGDATA is not defined correctly or
that initdb was not run.  Does the PgSQL731wina1.exe installer do these
steps too?
