I'm unclear why you think this would get a response from EnterpriseDB?
The reported bug was that there is no PostGIS option in the PostgreSQL
8.3 installer, which is correct - it's been made into a StackBuilder
component.

Are you sure that is what you installed? Advanced Server doesn't use
an MSI installer, it has an InstallShield Java based one. The standard
server from EnterpriseDB (known now as Postgres Plus) does use an MSI
installer - perhaps you have that?

Both Postgres Plus and Postgres Plus Advanced Server ship with PostGIS
on all platforms. In the Advanced Server product it's in a directory
called 'spatial' under the installation directory (if memory serves -
I don't work with AS much). On the standard product it's installed
automatically in the main directory tree for the server.

If you definitely are working with an EnterpriseDB product, and not
community Postgres which this thread started out about, a better place
to ask questions would be the EnterpriseDB forums:
