Googling a bit on this shows that it has something to do with
permissions. SOmewhere on your systems arae permissions that's
preventing the pg service account from launching initdb. It could be on
any of the referenced standard DLLs. Try using filemon from
www.sysinternals.com to see which file(s) it fails on.
