BUG #16556: The database cluster initialisation failed - Win 10 postgresql 12.3 version installation error

apt.postgresql.org Repository Update
The following bug has been logged on the website:

Bug reference:      16556
Logged by:          Dmitri Kozlov
Email address:      [hidden email]
PostgreSQL version: 12.3
Operating system:   Windows 10
Description:        

Hello

I am using Windows 10 Professional Machine at home. I have admin rights.

I am running the installation of version 12.3 (latest)

I am getting the error:
Problem running post-install step. Installation may not complete correctly
The database cluster initialisation failed.

Before Installation of version 12.3, I completed the steps below:
1. Uninstalled version 11 from Apps & Features on windows 10
2. Uninstalled pgadmin3 from Apps & Features on windows 10
3. Deleted the folder: C:\Program Files\Postgresql
4. Downloaded version 12.3 (latest)

The error occurred when I try to use:
1. The default installation path under C:\Program Files
2. Created new folder C:\Postgresql

No matter what installation path folder I use, the installation always looks
at C:\Program Files
I get the error no matter what installation path I use.

Could you please look into this issue and let me know why I cannot install
the new version or provide a workaround solution to address the problem.

I've seen this issue reported in the past, and when I try follow the advice,
nothing seems to work.

Therefore, I decided to create the official ticket.

Seems like a bug in getProcedureColumns(), which is missing check of the
pg_proc.prokind column. getProcedures() does this

     if (connection.haveMinimumServerVersion(ServerVersion.v11)) {
       sql += " AND p.prokind='p'";
     }

but getProceduresColumns() does not, so it happily returns columns even
for functions.

Dave, does this analysis seem correct?


regards
