If PostgreSQL was previously installed on this computer then it is imperative for you to know which major version was installed, for example PostgreSQL 8.3.x or 8.4.x. You can determine this via several methods:
- If PostgreSQL is still installed on your computer, go Start -> Programs and look for PostgreSQL (version) where (version) is the major version of PostgreSQL installed on your computer.
- If PostgreSQL is no longer installed on your computer, open My Computer and browse to your Program Files/PostgreSQL directory. There will be a sub-directory listed which is either 8.3 or 8.4 depending on the version installed.
