The directory structure is the following:


I have logged out and re-logged in as an user of Users group. As this user I
can create/edit/delete all the files and directories in all the folders and
subfolders of C:\pgsql\, I can start C:\pgsql\bin\initdb.exe and it works
perfectly. If I try to do the same as Administrator, it fails.
