Hi Erwin,

If the filename is the same it shouldn't complain, even if installed fom
a different directory. The vamus option used in the batch file roughly
equates to 'rerun this installation, overwriting every installed file'.
Although it's a newer MSI file, it will upgrade because the features and
components in the database are matched to those already installed by the
product ID.

This is the same technique we've used on the Windows builds of
PostgreSQL since 8.0.1.

Regards, Dave.
