This looks a lot like the postmaster.pid issue. Look in your DATA
directory, and remove that file if it exists.
If not, then it's a different issue. In this case, edit the
postgresql.conf file and set log_destination to include eventlog, then
look at eventlog output. (This is an issue with the installer that will
be fixed in the next beta release)
