Hi all, I have failed in execute initdb in "c:\Windows\Temp\dir" folder as reproduce logs below. The OS's messages "The current directory is invalid." was returned.
I think it is a specification of Window2012R2 (because i could not reproduce In Windows 7) but not PostgreSQL's problem. But is it need to be do something in PostgreSQL sir? I found that the ERROR messages produced when bootstrap_template1 (initdb.c) execute PG_CMD_OPEN (_popen function). _popen not failed but OS produced "The current directory is invalid." message, postgres did not start, and _pclose is returned with 1 make initdb failed. May be, Window2012R2 does not permit to execute postgres command with none privilege permission in this case, I think so. --- Reproduce Environment --- OS: Window2012R2 PostgreSQL: 9.5 Command: initdb Execute User: Administrator Execute folder: c:\Windows\Temp\dir ------------------- --- Reproduce log --- c:\Windows\Temp>mkdir dir c:\Windows\Temp>cd dir c:\Windows\Temp\dir> c:\Windows\Temp\dir>cmd /c ""C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\9.5\bin\initdb" --locale=C -D "c:\testdb" -d -n" Running in debug mode.
