Bug reference:      3274
Logged by:          Alan Mercer
Email address:      madscientist(at)xspmail(dot)com
PostgreSQL version: 8.2
Operating system:   Windows Vista
Description:        Failed to run initdb

I was trying a fairly vanilla installation on Windows Vista, and received
the following error:

Failed to run initdb: 1!

In the logfile, the description was:

The program "postgres" is needed by initdb but was not found in the
same directory as "C:/Program Files/PostgreSQL/8.2/bin/initdb".
Check your installation.

There is a file named postgres.exe in the specified directory.  Is this a
Vista issue (although it doesn't appear to be) or anything else previously

Please let me know if you need additional information.  Thank you very

Dr. Alan Mercer
