[postgis-users] no .bat in windows zip installers

Hello Regina,
thanks for the answer.

I'm not a big fan of bat files,
but I do have to use the zip version and not the .exe.
So maybe a small update of the README.txt to indicate
how to get postgis working without the bat files.

What we did is get the .bat from 2.1.1 and past it in the 2.1.2, then run
Then we could use the CREATE EXTENSION on a fresh database.

What would be the new workflow?
