[postgis-users] Cygwin installation

Thank you, chmod did the trick! Now it's on to PostGIS installation. I finally get somewhat comfortable using Linux, now I have to figure out mixed permissions in Windows+Cygwin. There seems to be no end of interesting challenges ...

eventually your postgres user does not have the right to run postgres.exe

Could you try to fix the access rights with

chmod a+rx /usr/bin/postgres.exe

as the administrator of the machine

and try again to run postgres.exe as the user postgres?
If it still doesn't work, have a look at the postmaster log file

the problem.
