Great...  Good luck...

Just an additional note, I've chosen a naming convention with the folders
for all of my PostgreSQL installs that matches the ports that they are
running on.  For instance, I have a pgdata folder that has a 5432 and a 5433
folder in it.  I then copy the binaries into those folders, execute the
commands necessary to make windows aware of the installs and away you go...

Hi Paul,

i did not received a eMail with the answer and the Link to your Blog  
from the postgres list. But a link within this eMail lead me to the  
correct answer and link.
Your blog entry looks pretty suitable. Especially the "postgres  
register" could be a nice way to deploy just the binaries and resolve  
some of my biggest issues with the installer(registry entries).
Tomorrow, i will try and report.

Thanks!

Peter
