1. Start the cmd with administrator user and add the new postgresql service
with a standard user that is created.
2. Start the services window with the user having administrator privileges and
go to the corresponding added service.
3. Right click on the service provides an properties option.
4. In the properties, there is an logon tab. Click it
5. Provide the password for the new user that is used for creating the service.
6. This adds the user to log on permissions.

I am able to reproduce the problem with 9.5 binary. I am getting Access Denied
problem when i try to start the 9.6 binary service with the local user.

Yes, EACCES may be possible other than duplicate dsm name.
