    Why would you want to download an old version?

    The current version is 8.4.1 and you should prefer that over the (more than outdated) 8.1 release.

    Anyway, the files can be downloaded from here the "Download" link on the Postgres web site:
    PostgreSQL: Downloads

    If you want to browse all available versions, go to PostgreSQL: File Browser

    Dear shammat,

    Thank you for your response. I did try the links before, but cannot found it. I am sorry I haven't mention that I need a Windows version. I am ordered to install PostgreSQL 8.1.18 into a XP professional. It is better for a binary installer because I am afraid I cannot handle the compiling things.

    Regards,
    Antony

    I doubt there is an archive of old unsupported versions.

    The 8.1 line was never officially considered stable enough for production on the Windows platform.

    Quote from PostgreSQL: Windows packages
    "Only PostgreSQL 8.2 and above are supported on Windows"

    Go back to whoever told you to install that version and tell him or her that 8.1 on Windows is not available.
