[postgis-users] Probelm with postgis-pg81-setup-1.1.6-1 in XP

I had the same problem.
I wanted to upgrade the Postgis install on WinXP.
So I removed the postgis installation out of postgressql by the postgres
And indeed when re-installing postgis it generates errors.
(Eventhough the postgres installer shows postgis is not installed (anymore))
The only thing I could do (without loosing too much time over this) is
unstalling postgres, reinstall it without postgis and do the postgis install

Yes of course, it was the first I did!

I did it before I wrote this mail, at least twice. At the moment, when I run
the Postgresql installer it shows that the Postgis is not installed. How can
I check what version of Postgis I have?
