[postgis-users] Problems with installing postgis in windows

I'm thinking about how many people get bitten by this.


Would it help if I put –edb or something like that in the installer name?


The binaries should work fine with BigSQL though aside from the paths, but I
figured most people using BigSQL would be using the BigSQL postgis binaries
so no need to create a batch script for it or anything aside from a cursory

Sorry it works now, I had used postgres “BIGSQL”, not  EDB installation!

I’ve tried to install Postgis for windows
(postgis-bundle-pg11x64-setup-2.5.1-1.exe) with PostgreSQL11.

But I receive this message at the end of the installation:

ERROR:  could not open extension control file
"C:/POSTGR~1/pg11/../pg11/share/postgresql/extension/postgis.control": No
such file or directory


Then I down loaded the zip file and copied the postgis.control to this
directory and tried to install again.


This time I got this error message instead at the end of the installation:

ERROR:  extension "postgis" has no installation script nor update path for
version "2.5.1"


Has anyone any idea what I’m doing wrong?


Kind regards,
