I tried for several days to install the w32-postgres project. Finally
Powergres which is now running without trouble on the HP notebook. From
your post I think the trouble is in the support ( lack of) for XP-Home.
I think there will be many with notbooks who would like to use postgres
as a development tool possibly with the view that the final application
will run on a XP/2000 or Linux server. 

With all the hard work done and a great product nearly available it
would appear that the security issues are really hobbling the
finalisation of the w32 project.
