postgre_installation2 : completing stack builder
PostgreSQL -stack builder.: windows 8 Home premium 64 bit, uses FastCGI for PHP and also has MySQL/WorkBench/phpMyAdmin tuned-up sccessfully.


The installer ( as described in postgre_installation1.htm) , prompted to launch stack builder and I did quit the  installer to look deep inside this application; before proceeding further. I was not aware of this step.

As you note in the above , this application is meant to be running on apache server; and I did not find any scope of this extended application with IIS/FastCGI /PHP environment. I may upload my 2cents opinion with windows 7 ultimate platform.

FYI: I tried phpMyAdmin and , phpPgAdmin-5.1 in this machine , the later would run due to security and other constraints. I tuned up phpMyAdmin  in this machine (IIS 8.0 windows 8 /FastCGI ) environment.

 Further, the embedded pgAdmin3.exe file would be good enough to create User and new data bases and tables.
