Ok, I'll check that out. But what about installing the postgresSql headers
on my machine? In the install directory there is no include/server directory
which means I'm missing "postgres.h" and "fmgr.h". How can I install these
on my system.

To the best of my knowledge you must use the MinGW/MSys toolset to make
your own serverside functions etc. I have not heard of anyone doing this
successfully with the Microsoft toolset. Note that you only need these
tools to build addons, not to run them.
