Well, I use some of the other cygwin unix utils ocassionally. What exactly is the easy-install? It uses cygwin, but cygwin wouldn't be available?

Are you using cygwin on your PC for anything other than PostgreSQL?
About a day ago we put together an initial "easy-installation" package
of PostgreSQL (using cygwin) for Windows. It's been working fine here.
If you're not using cygwin for anything else, and you've made a backup
of your data (just in case), would you be interested in installing that
and seeing if it works for you properly? Was going to add it to the
PostgreSQL sites later on today, but can do it sooner rather than later
Regards and best wishes,
