Failed to run initdb: 1!
logfile in c:\porgram files\postgreSQL\8.1\tmp\initdb.log


initdb: directory "C:/Program Files/PostgreSQL/8.1/data" exists but is not
empty If you want to create a new database system, either remove or empty
the directory "C:/Program Files/PostgreSQL/8.1/data" or run initdb
with an argument other than "C:/Program Files/PostgreSQL/8.1/data".
