Hi,

I have been trying to install 8.4 on my Vista without success. Earlier 
I'd tried to install 8.3 and that failed too. I tried installing these 
on other Vista machines and they failed too. I searched for google and 
enterprisedb forums and there are innumerable requests like mine. Same 
with Windows 7. It seems enterprisedb has no clue on what the problem is 
and how to fix it. There is not even a guide on how to install 
postgresql on Vista or Windows 7. Their 'guide' is only for MacOS. The 
"one click" feels like a scam. Search for other threads on their forums 
or on google. Their support staff want to be helpful but I think they 
just lack the necessary expertise in solving such issues.

I was able to install 8.3 from postgresql.org download site and now I 
see 8.4 is no longer supported. What are we windows users supposed to 
do? Our production servers are linux based but our development 
environment is Windows.

I have nothing against enterprisedb but the decision to 'leave out' 
windows from postgresql.org download site seems political and will 
simply alienate more people from postgresql. We advocate pgsql to all 
our customers and help them in installation and training at no cost 
because we believe that is some way of giving back. With the new 
"1-click" we are not sure any more.  I strongly recommend that you start 
supporting the win32 binary on postgresql.org site again because that 
used to work till 8.3 and enterprisedb is failing for a long time.

Regards,
Nikhil
