Bug reference:      2934
Logged by:          inifinity
Email address:      priyatam(at)gmail(dot)com
PostgreSQL version: 8.2
Operating system:   Windows XP
Description:        INSTALL FAILURE - failed to set permissions on the
installed files
Details: 

I've been trying to install this from past two days and all I can see is a
an error message towards the end of installation and a log file which I
cannot acccess in my default C:\program files\postrgresql\8.2

the error says to check a log file perm.log but I cannot browse or delete
the *\8.2 folder. says access denied. 

I have a admin user account and Im 100% sure I have given the right
username/pwd in the first page of the installation with 'postgresql' as a
superuser (and a diff pwd). 

Tried searching all forums but no result.

I just hope someone sees this message and comes up with a solution rather
than ask my cryptic questions in return

Here is the postgresql-8.2.logfile (which I got after running again with
detailed logging)

Property(C): PrimaryVolumeSpaceAvailable = 0
Property(C): PrimaryVolumeSpaceRequired = 0
Property(C): PrimaryVolumeSpaceRemaining = 0
