Using binaries you have to create the database cluster and start the service
manually.



Creation of database cluster using initdb.exe binaries and start the
postgres service using pg_ctl.exe binaries in command prompt as follows:-



C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.3\bin>initdb.exe –D < data directory path>



C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.3\bin>pg_ctl.exe –D < data directory path>
start



Using postgresql-8.4.1-1-windows.exe, installer will creates the database
cluster and start the Postgres service automatically. download the one click
installer from below link
