The following bug has been logged on the website: Bug reference: 15914 Logged by: Kellen Park Email address: (redacted) PostgreSQL version: 11.4 Operating system: windows Description: I downloaded postgresql and when downloading at the end I got the following error message: "problem running post-install step. installation may not complete correctly. The database cluster initialization failed." It looks like it download and it opens on my browser, but I can't do anything. I am already over a week behind in school and this is horrible! I have un-installed and re-installed over 50 times. I have tried as admin, but when I get the following errors: "Error stopping service" "Error deleting service" "The data directory (data directory i used) has not been removed." I looked everywhere on my computer and it looks like the only thing left behind is the folder, so I delete the folder before trying to re-install. I have tried re-installing with a different password, but when I finish downloading, I still get the same error, and it finishes downloading and when I sign in it still wants me to use my original password. Seeming as though it really isn't un-installing fully. I have even cleared my browser data, and still has the same issue. I have looked online and it seems like some people had this issue years ago, but all the help they had didn't work for me. Please help me. I am so beyond frustrated at this point.
