i am guessing from the fact that the script you are
executing is initdb.cgi
1. is your database up and running. does it have a
user for rt? (typically rt_user with a password).

i had to run the initialize-database script manually
when i set my system up.

which database do you use?

2. look in your error_log file for apache, there is
probably some info there, for example you might be
able to see on which row the script fails out. look in
the script and see what happens there and post again
if needed.
i don't know where apaches logfiles are stored on
windows machines but you can always search after a
file called error_log.

3. consider setting up the system on a unix machine
(or linux).
