That is not good, and needs to be fixed. Please log a bug with the pginstaller project on pgfoundry.org.

That is normal. We don't bump file versions during beta. Once a new production release is installed it will have a higher version number on libpq.dll, and the file will automatically be replaced.

The uninstall part. This file has not changed during beta, though, so it shouldn't be a problem. A problem with this file is that we pull it in from upstream, and it doesn't have a versioninfo tag...
