Hello,

I am trying to install postgresql-8.2.4 on (Remote Server) with Windows
Server 2003 (pack 1).

I use the postgresql-8.2.msi installer with:

 

- national language support, PL/java, Development files selected
- install a service option checked with postgres user
- initialize database cluster option checked with port 5432, accept
connection on all addresses not just localhost option checked, locale
English UK, encoding Latin1 and super user postgres
- PL/pgsql, PL/perl, PL/python selected
- Adminpack selected as contrib module.


I executed the installation as Administrator (user group
Administrators).


I got the error" Failed to run initdb: 128! "With an error log that is
empty"

Googling this error, I can see it is probably something to do with
authorizations but I can't figure out what is wrong exactly.

How did you fix the error?

Thanks a lot for your help.
Best regards,

Susanta
