Thank you for the reply.
But then are you saying I don't even really need to use the MSI in the first
place?
I can just copy the files to a folder. Then run initdb and pg_ctl?

I am bundling PostGreSQL with my software package. And will be using
Installshield to copy my program files to the client computer.
Now can I just get the PostGresql folder, put it where I want, then
Run initdb and pg_ctl?

No, the MSI instlaler only lets you install once instance on each
machine. (Unless you are talking different versions, that is). You can,
however, install one instance with the MSI installer, and then manually
run initdb and pg_ctl register to set up a second service with a
different data directory.
