I did have tcl84.dll in my cygwin install. Renaming it allowed the install to proceed.

Thanks... 

But that begs the question - my other 2 machine ALSO have cygwin installed with tcl but the initial install went OK.

  Actually, it helps a bit. It shows we have an actual *crash* in CheckAvailableDLLs. This codei s basically:
  LoadLibraryEx on perl58.dll, tcl84.dll and python23.dll. It is supposed to handle failures on that, and certainly shouldn't crash.
  Then it does a GetVersionEx() to cehck if the machine is a domain controller. The crash could come from here for some reason, but I think I've exercised all codepaths there befoer.

  Can yuo check if you have any of the above listed DLLs on your system? If you do, try renaming them to ".dll.old" or something and run again, just to see if we get past this point then - that would pinpoint that DLL as the problem.

    Doesn't seem to offer much help!

      I assume this happens before you are presented with even the first dialog box?
      Please try running the installer with logging enabled:
      msiexec /l* c:\pginstlog.txt /i c:\where\ever\postgresql-8.0.0-beta4.msi

      That should produce a logfile that will hopefully point you in the direction of what's wrong

        I've been able to install version 8.0.0 beta 4 on two machines but the third one fails. The Windows Installer starts but after a few seconds the installer widow disappears.

        I'm using Win2K with all current service packs.

        Any ideas on what is wrong or how I can make this work?

        TIA.
