I tried to use SC Windows command (Service Commander) with an administrative
login, but no success again:
net user *postgres* mypass /add

*sc* *create* pgsql-8.4 binpath= "C:\*postgres*\8.4\bin\pg_ctl.exe
runservice -w -N pgsql-8.4 -D C:\data5\" type=own start=auto displayname= "*
PostgreSQL* 8.4 p5430" password= mypass

*sc* start pgsql-8.4

All commands above give me "Access denied".

Anyone have a tip? Am I in a wrong list to ask about this?
Thanks in advance,
Josi Perez
