I am attempting to install PostgreSQL.  I downloaded 8.2.12-1zip from and then followed the installation instructions  outlined in I am installing on a Windows XP machine with an NTFS file system.  I opened the zip contents from a temporary folder with all internet security functions disabled. 

When I reached step 11 in the instructions, I received an error message: "Internal account look-up failure. No mapping between account names and security ID was done."  I retried several times using a new download from a different mirror, but always received the same error message.

I searched for and found a prior reference to this message (Sept 04 2008) but ws unable to retrieve the full message and response.  Can you offer any suggestions for dealing with this problem?
