PostgreSQL version: 8.1
Operating system:   Windows Xp Embedded
Description:        Installation error
Details: 

I have a Windows Xp Embedded just for Postgre and no other application runs
in the background.
System settings are:
-Processor:
    Intel Celeron M 1300 MHz
-Memory:
    512 Ram

I get an error when trying to install Postgre Database Server 8.1.The Error
is "Failed to run initdb: 1!
Please see the logfile in 'C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.1\tmp\initdb.log'.
Note! You must read/copy this logfile before you click OK, or it will be
automatically removed."

In the Log file "initdb.log" there are:
