Sorry Aleksander, but I can't really remember what I did. I had a 
service running from a Cygwin install of  Postgres, and I was messing 
around with the command line for installing/uninstalling the service, 
and had to reboot several times. I initially tried to change the path of 
the sevice executable, and it was a big mess. This was the unzippable 
version of Postgres from about a moth ago, so it is not really relevant 
to this installer.

As an aside, Dave, can we get the \bin and \lib paths in the PATH 
variable as part of the install? I am not sure if that will create a 
mess if they are already there ...

Also, my PGDATA variable is still set at c:\postgres\data - but it does 
not seem to have an effect on Postgres. I am going to try accessing 
postgres with some python modules, and see what that does.

Cheers,

jp
