Hmm.  Thanks for letting us know Maciek.

It should work to read earlier versions of the database even with the
requirement for the newer dlls...  Do you have an older database that
you can test with?

I guess we may need to distribute the PostgreSQL dlls with the package.
Doing this, and getting the user to copy them into the fdo/bin directory
would "solve" a lot of the setup problems that people are having.  Any
chance you could give me a list of the dlls required?  Yes, I know I'm
being lazy by not running depends myself :)

specific DLLs from that directory into the fdo/bin directory, but I
haven't had to do that myself.
