Hello,

after some fiddling i had success in making PostgreSQL 9.1 somewhat more
portable.
Some of our customers need to copy and run our application from an USB
device.
If the VC 2008 Redistributable packet is not installed PostgreSQL denies to
start.

Solution: copy msvcr90.dll + the manifest file below to .\bin directory.
LibreOffice portable solved the problem in the same manner.

I suggest to add the files to the standard Win32 distribution.
Installing the Redistributable packet, which is done by the standard
installation, would be unnecessary then. 
 
Microsoft.VC90.CRT.manifest
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>

<assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0">
    <noInheritable/>
    <assemblyIdentity
        type="win32"
        name="Microsoft.VC90.CRT"
        version="9.0.21022.8"
        processorArchitecture="x86"
        publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b"
    />
    <file name="msvcr90.dll" /> <file name="msvcp90.dll" /> <file
name="msvcm90.dll" />
</assembly>
