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
