How to Install PostgreSQL 8.0 on WINDOWS 7?

P: 1
I have tried to install postgreSQL on my WINDOWS 7 but it just does not seems to work.

When installing, it stuck at "starting services". It says, "Service 'PostgreSQL Database Server 8.0.0-rc1' (pgsql-8.0.0-rc1) failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privilleges to start system services."

I have tried the solutions for Installing PostgreSQL 8.1 on VISTA from this forum but still nothing goes right.

I have a customer with the same exact scenario (installing postgresql 8.0 on Windows 7) failing in the exact same way (services fail to start, check for sufficient permissions). The install process is elevated to the local Admin so I'm not sure what's really going on with this. I'm also not sure if going to a later version will break their app so I'm reluctant to try...besides the postgresql 8.0 install is integrated into their app install.
