Yes, you need to create another user.
When running as a service, just tell the installer. It should set up
required permissions. Then start the service as normal using the Service
Control Manager.

When running manually, you will have to grant the postgres user the
required permissions on the PGDATA directory. Then you can start the
server using "runas".
