This may not be your problem, but thought I'd mention it since I had the
problem installing on a remote windows server.

If you are trying to install via Terminal services,  there is a documented
issue that it can't do an init in regular mode.   You have to connect to the
terminal services in console mode

mstsc /console

The below link has other known documented issues with installing on Windows.
Probably good to go thru the list if you haven't already.

I have tried the pginstaller a number of times on my system and it always
ends in failure.

I have seen a setup file on the pgfoundry site that allows manual
installation.

Is there some documentation for it?

I also sw some instructions for a silent installation - are they 2 options
the same?

I have been able to install cygwin postgresql a number of times, manually so
I am sure I will be able to do the manual installation.

I just need to be able to get past the initdb failure
