PG 9.2beta2 installation on Windows XP fails? Don’t worry!

Shit happens guys. And sometimes PostgreSQL windows installer fails. Now I’m talking about EnterpriseDB One-Click Installer for PostgreSQL 9.2beta2 particularly.

As for me, I got “An error occurred executing the Microsoft VC++ runtime installer” message. Strange. I have a holy zoo of different runtimes on my test machine.

For those of you who need my advice. Run installer with additional parameter:

postgresql-9.2.0-beta2-windows.exe --install_runtimes 0

This will run installer without VC runtime check.

PS If you’ll need VC runtime you always may find it on the MS official site.
