First, your mailer's habit of putting "R:" instead of the standard "Re:" at
the front of replies is annoying. You need to fix it.
Second, of course pg_restore works on Windows. The most common mistakes in
using pg_dump/pg_restore (on all platforms) are:
. not using pg_dump from the target version, and
. trying to use pg_restore rather than psql to restore a text format dump.
I suggest you try using pg_dump -F c on your Windows machine to dump the
remote db and then try pg_restore on the result to load your copy. If that
gives you trouble then tell us *precisely* what the trouble is.
