Tried searching for - not there.

A pity. Postgresql should look at Interbase/Firebird
for the way to do this stuff. Run the exe and it
installs itself as a service no problem...

I have a project that I'm doing that requires 
Windows for the server (hey, it's not *_my_*
fault) so I was going to try to use Postgresql,
but I think that I'll just have to stick with 

From what I can see on the site, Postgresql will
be native for Windows from 7.4 about 6 months from
now. It looks like I'll have to wait until then.
