Installing EDB Postgres Advanced Server with the interactive installer v16

You can use the EDB Postgres Advanced Server interactive installer to install EDB Postgres Advanced Server on Windows. The interactive installer is available from Downloads page on the EDB website.

You can invoke the graphical installer in different installation modes to perform an EDB Postgres Advanced Server installation.

During the installation, the graphical installer copies a number of temporary files to the location specified by the TEMP environment variable. You can optionally specify an alternative location for the temporary files by modifying the value of the TEMP environment variable at the command line:

SET TEMP=<temp_file_location>

Where <temp_file_location> specifies the alternative location for the temporary files and must match the permissions with the TEMP environment variable.


If you're invoking the installer to perform a system upgrade, the installer preserves the configuration options specified during the previous installation.
