I *think* what is missing is the shared memory. Though I'm not sure. In
this case, initdb calls postgres.exe and that's where the error comes
from, from what I can tell.

(Note that it does *not* say that it's a file that's missing)

Did some googling, and it looks like at least Windows CE does not have
support for the kind of shared memory that we do. Don't know about XP
Embedded.
