Hi Bruce

Yes initdb is in c:\msys\1.0\local\pgsql\bin.

I downloaded the binary from the following location
http://www.hagander.net/pgsql/win32snap/postgres_win32_7.5_devel.zip

Regards

Richard

OK, is 'initdb' in c:/msys/1.0/local/pgsql/bin or somewhere else?  Where
are you downloading this binary?  Is it possible it isn't getting
updated nightly?
