I get a popup box that says:

initdb.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. 
We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Clicking a link gives this info:

AppName: initdb.exe      AppVer:      ModName: msvcrt.dll
ModVer: 7.0.2600.1106    Offset: 00033830

It wouldn't let me copy the rest of the info ;-(
