Logged by:          Mario Danelli
Email address:      mario(dot)danelli(at)gmail(dot)com
PostgreSQL version: 9.0.4 (32 bit)
Operating system:   Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit)
Description:        The installation fails with the error message: "Unable
to write inside TEMP environment path"
Details: 

The installation on Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit) fails immediately after
the double-click on the installer "postgresql-9.0.4-1-windows.exe" (32 bit)
with the error "Unable to write inside TEMP environment path". 

The bitrock_installer.log file contains:

The strange thing is that the installation of 64 bit version of the same pg
9.0.4 complete succesfully so i suppose that the vbscript launcher is
correctly installed and configured.

I need to use 32 bit version because i want to add PostGIS not yet released
for the 64 bit pg version.

Thanks in advance
