PostgreSQL version: 8.2.7
Operating system: Win2k3R2SP2
Description: PG_CTL fails to strip admin rights before running
I am trying to run pg_ctl.exe as admin when I get this error.
"FATAL: postgres: could not locate matching postgres executable."
I know there was a fix in 8.2.7 to fix this permission admin rights issue.
I've observed the fix in initdb.exe. In 8.2.1 initdb fails because it can't
find postgres. In 8.2.7 initdb success.
I assumed pg_ctl would have the same behaivor since I see the same calls to
AddUserDacl that I saw for initdb. However, I am still coming up error for
pg_ctl which I believe might be a windows permission issue.
