Hello Valter,

I am doing something similar with the Windows installer for the PostBooks 
project.  Basically, what I do is this:

1. Use the Postgres windows installer to install 8.2.7
2. Import all the application's databases.
3. Using the NSIS Installer Generation app:
 	1. Include all files under c:\program files\postgresql... in my 
project;
 	2. Use NSIS utilities to install the PostgreSQL service in a 
custom manner.  I do this on a non-standard port so that if the user 
already has PG, it does not clobber the existing install.

I don't have a lot of time at the moment, but later today I can go into 
details if you like.  In the meantime, check out:

Cheers,
-J
