If you don't need it as a service the it's pretty simply: 

download the ZIP archive binaries from 

http://www.enterprisedb.com/products/pgbindownload.do

unzip the archive and then run initdb from the commandline to create the database cluster. To start the server, simply run "pg_ctl -D \Path\To\Datadir start"
