Can I run PostgreSQL on a Windows architecture?
The main PostgreSQL project plans to add support for a native Windows version with our 7.5 or 8.0 release. This will probably be released in early 2004, with that time estimate being based on 7.4 being due for release near the end of 2003. The free option at present is to use PostgreSQL running through Cygwin* That being all said and done however, we don’t recommend using the cygwin version of PostgreSQL for “Production” quality databases, nor high load levels. http://techdocs.postgresql.
