PostgreSQL version: 12.0
Operating system:   Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.18362.418]

Similar to the case of pg_ctl. If a fake cmd.exe exits in current directory,
pg_upgrade is failed to start.

Instructions:
# cd %TEMP%
# "c:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\12\bin\pg_ctl.exe" initdb -D test
# set PGDATAOLD=%TEMP%\test
# set PGDATANEW=%TEMP%\test
# set PGBINOLD=c:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\12\bin
# set PGBINNEW=c:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\12\bin
# copy %windir%\system32\calc.exe cmd.exe
# "c:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\12\bin\pg_upgrade"
