Correct. This is because it doesn't do an initdb. You are required to do

These are set when you run "initdb". I beleive if you don't specify
anything at all, you will get:
1) The same username as the windows username used to run initdb
2) No password
3) Trust authentication

If you did this without doing initdb, it means you had an old data
directory aronud. In which case the password will be whatever you
assigned that installation.
