As a newbee, I had to:
- download and install cygwin (Postgresql executables included),
- read the cygwin list,
- create a postgres user and log on it (otherwise, you have to use ssh),
- install the IPC daemon as a service,
- run initdb,
- install postmaster as a service.
This takes 4 hours when no access to the README.
I agree it takes less time with the README.
The large audience of Windows users need a proper installer.
Or they are not going to make it at all...
