PostgreSQL version: 8.2 -> 8.3.5
Operating system:   Vista Ultimate SP1
Description:        Instalation error: Failed to run initdb: 255!


Today I decided it would be a good idea to update postgresql 8.2 to 8.3.5
for performance reasons..

I backed up, dropped all db, uninstalled postgresql and removed all
remaining folders.

Now installation of 8.3.5 does not complete, initdb fails. giving the error
message Failed to run initdb: 255!

Help is very much appreciated!
