You could try with a smaller area first. Cool that it worked with planet.osm
OSM files for certain countries are available here for example:

There are probably many Windows users in the pgRouting community, but
obviously just a few that can build Windows binaries.
So the currently available builds were reported to us from users. It would
be nice to find some volunteers, who could maintain the Windows builds.

osm2po is independent from pgRouting, so you don't need to rebuild

A-Star and Dijkstra work with node ID's, Shooting Star with link ID's.
You need to find the closest link/node to your start point to get the
Yes, a link has a start node and a end node.

To make it work the same way as in the tutorial I created a "view", for
example like this:
CREATE VIEW view_ph_topo AS SELECT id AS gid, type_name AS class_id,
st_length(geom_way) AS length, osm_name AS name, x1, y1, x2, y2,
reverse_cost, cost, km, kmh, priority, source, target, target_angle, osm_id,
pid, osm_source_id, osm_target_id, geom_way AS the_geom, geom_source,
geom_target, length(transform(geom_way, 900913)) AS meters,
length(transform(geom_way, 900913)) AS meters_rc, 0.0::double precision AS
to_cost, NULL::text AS rule FROM ph_topo;
Maybe the table layout of osm2po has changed again, so I can't say it works
exactly like this.
Then you should be able make a query like the ones in the tutorials.
