Are you running pg_ctl from the postgres account? If not, this could
be unrelated to the core issue.  Typically to attempt manually pg_ctl
start you runas a console into the postgres account.

If the database starts w/o error from postgres account, my money is on
user/password issue which is endless headache on windows pg servers
(at least, they were for me when I was on windows).
