hi, i just tried to upgrade libpq.dll on windows and couldn't work out how to do it. in the past, with 8.3.x, i knew i had to download the entire server even though i only wanted the client but at least i was able to install just the client software. now, with 8.4 (enterprisedb one click installer), i tried to deselect what looked like server-related options and kept the client-related options selected but the installer kept telling me that something i had selected required the server to also be selected. i had to unselected all of the options before that error went away. since none of the options was just the client library i thought there was a remote chance that it might make some sense especially when the installer happily proceeded with the installation process even though no components were selected. i figured it must know something i didn't anyway, all that was installed was the stackbuilder. there was no PostgresPlus/8.4SS/bin/libpq.dll as i had expected. so, what have i done wrong? how do i use the one click installer to just install libpq.dll? i don't mind installing other client software along with it. i just don't want the server installed. should i install the server and client software and then uninstall the server software?(Continue reading)
