After OS upgrade from XP to Vista postgre user password does not work

P: 2
I have an installer application (Installshield) which installs postgre DB programmatically on windows:
I have a requirement where postgre DB is expected work after upgrading OS from windows XP to Vista

However once I upgrade to vista somehow ./postgre windows user's password is chnaged or not working
If I try to start service Postgre SQL database it gives me "Logon failure"
If I manually set password & start a sevice it comes up properly

This is consistently happening for all Vista flavours
Any clue is welcome
