    "Except Cygwin.." - in that case it is not possible...

    Vmware.....

    also, There is a hybrid solution, which consist in VMWare (install virtual linux OS with postgres and create gateway with postgres port and local windows service)
    but....too weight.

    Yes but cygwin solution is better (less system resources needed)

    Im kinda wondering why one wouldnt want the cygwin sollution.

    As far as i can tell its pretty stable and reasonably easy to set up.

    Works perfectly on my windows2003 system.

    It is the same as under Unix.
    You need to have cygwin with gcc installed.
    Then go to www.postgresql.org and look at documentation.

    You can use UltraSQL from www.nusphere.com - it's available for free trial (I don't think there's a timelimit on it yet either).

    The drawback is that it's based on PostgreSQL 7.2.1 or something.

    Hi, I've been searching for the same thing until I found this:

    http://techdocs.postgresql.org/guide...llingOnWindows

    I had download and install the package. I have problems with the service, so I can't say it works fine, but also may be that my machine needs to been clean. At this time I have 3 differents SQL services running, a web server and many things in memory that may conflict with postgre.

    If you can run the service without problems, please... email me.
