I have compiled PostgreSQL 8.2.4 with MinGW on Windows 2000. Then I

The program "postgres" is needed by initdb but was not found in the
same directory as "C:\msys\1.0\local\pgsql\bin/initdb".
Check your installation.

So, I have debugged initdb.exe. I found that CreatePipe() was failed
with ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED in exec.c:pipe_read_line().

The attached files are test programs.

  % gcc -o child.exe child.c
  % gcc -o parent.exe parent.c

When parent.exe is executed by Power Users or Users, the result is
good. However, CreatePipe() is failed when Administrator do.

  % ./parent.exe
  CreatePipe() failed: 5

What do you want us to do about it? Isn't this a case of "don't do that, then"? Run initdb as some other user. We don't let you run initdb as root on Unix, so we're just being consistent. In fact, we're being more liberal on Windows than on Unix because we make some provision for the restricted token gadget.
