I know I'm going to go on some people's nerves, but it's necessary.

With the current "run-as-non-admin" restriction the windows installer 
doesn't work, and it will probably be ridiculously difficult to make it 
work unless this restriction is redesigned.

I don't see any point in restricting postgres.exe (i.e. the single user 
non-communicating version) to non-superusers. Installations are usually 
executed with admin privileges (non-admins won't be able to create 
services), and currently it fails to initialize the cluster with that 
d***d message. Consequently, it rolls back the complete installation 
leaving me at point zero.

If I was an average win32 user testing pgsql, this would be the end of 
my attempt to install it.


Regards,
Andreas
