Thanks to Andrew and others.

I have now resolved the windows problem with the .dll for initdb - putting
it in same directory as initdb worked

Now successfully got it all running... just need to work out how to start
the server running against the customer database rather than template
version.. I have a .dump which I need to restore

But thanks for the very prompt advice

You need to do one of the following:

. copy libpq.dll into the bin directory where initdb.exe lives, or
. add the lib directory where libpq.dll lives to your path
