When installing as service, do you install it with postgres account? Or do you let it run with SYSTEM account?

I tried all three, without any success.

There was another problem with postgresql configuration that I hadn't
mentioned. initdb failed when run as the user "postgres", but completed
successfully under my usual login.

These permission changes now allow initdb to run from the "postgres"
account. postmaster still successfully installs as a service, but fails to
run, whether installed to run under my usual login or "postgres" (after
initdb has been run under the appropriate account).

TIP 2: you can get off all lists at once with the unregister command
