If you find a bug with the installers or the buildbot packages, please report these on our Ticket Tracker under component: build/upgrade/install with keyword: windows.

Released Versions

PostGIS 2.3.2 came out January 31st, 2017. Binaries are currently available in experimental section for versions of PostgreSQL 9.3-9.6 (64-bit, 32-bit coming soon). Installers are available for PostgreSQL 9.6, 9.5, 9.4 64-bit. 9.6-9.4 32-bit coming soon.

The installers are designed to work with EDB Application Stackbuilder. If you are using BigSQL distribution use the PostGIS available via the BigSQL distribution. If you are on BigSQL (PostgreSQL 9.5+) and need items not available in BigSQL distribution (e.g. SFCGAL, pgRouting, or development versions of PostGIS), you can use the binaries in the experimental section. Note the path you copy to in BigSQL is a little different (e.g. postgresql/lib instead of lib).

If you need SFCGAL support, you need to use the PostGIS packaged in these zips instead of the BigSQL PostGIS. Also make sure not to overwrite any files that come with BigSQL distribution.

Make sure you are using PostgreSQL 9.5.2+ or PostgreSQL 9.4.7+ or PostgreSQL 9.6.0+. These may not work with lower PostgreSQL micros.

PostGIS 2.3.2 bundle includes:

Installers are available for PostGIS 2.2.2 for PostgreSQL 9.5 32/64-bit, PostgreSQL 9.4 64-bit (binaries in experimental for PostgreSQL 9.2-9.5 both 32 and 64-bit)

Make sure you are using PostgreSQL 9.5.2+ or PostgreSQL 9.4.7+ or PostgreSQL 9.6.0+. These may not work with PostgreSQL lower micros.

Installers are available for PostGIS 2.1.8 for PostgreSQL 9.2 (64-bit), PostgreSQL 9.4 (32/64-bit) (via Application stackbuilder) and windows download. NOTE: the PostgreSQL 9.2 PostGIS 2.1.8 installers and binaries require PostgreSQL 9.2.9 or above. If you had done a micro upgrade from a pre-PostgreSQL 9.2.9 and your PostGIS or pgRouting broke, you need to install this version.

PostGIS 2.1.8 binaries of PostgreSQL are available on winnie build-bot page

PostGIS 2.1.8 bundle includes

  1. Download and install PostgreSQL from EnterpriseDB.
  2. Run the “StackBuilder” utility and install the PostGIS add-on.
    • The version of PostGIS included in StackBuilder might not be the very very latest stable because the binaries are created before the installers are available. You can get the latest PostGIS to install into the Windows EnterpriseDB build of PostgreSQL.
  3. Download and install the appropriate PostGIS installer for your PostgreSQL version from the PostGIS Windows download site. If you are running PostgreSQL 64-bit, make sure to use a package with 64 in the name. The ones not noted or with w32 are for PostgreSQL 32-bit. If you are using PostgreSQL 32-bit on a 64-bit windows, you will need to use the 32-bit package.
  4. You can also get bleeding edge of the latest versions (or latest for older versions) from our build servers described in next column. Use at your own risk.
    • You can also get a combined PostgreSQL / PostGIS / GeoServer install by downloading the OpenGeo Suite. The PostGIS version may not be the latest.

If you want to use the zip, setup, and setup source files directly they are available:

Unreleased PostGIS Versions

If you are more adventurous, and risk-seeking you can partake in our experimental windows binaries of PostGIS built automatically by Winnie whenever there is a change in any of the PostGIS 2.0, 2.1, 2.2 Stable or development branches. These are especially useful for testing out new features or if you are badly in need of a bug fix that has not been released yet.

If you don’t want to risk messing up an existing windows install or aren’t allowed to write to the registry , we’d suggest using the companion PostgreSQL EDB binaries-only binaries which don’t require installation. Setup is detailed in Starting PostgreSQL in windows without install.

PostgreSQL EDB 9.4+ will not work with Windows XP, so if you have Windows XP, use PostgreSQL 9.3

Installing Experimental Binaries

Enabling PostGIS

PostGIS is an optional extension that must be enabled in EVERY database you want to use it in. If you are running PostgreSQL 9.1+ you can use. packaged with PostGIS 2.1+:

CREATE EXTENSION address_standardizer;
CREATE EXTENSION fuzzystrmatch;
CREATE EXTENSION postgis_topology;
CREATE EXTENSION postgis_tiger_geocoder;

postgis_tiger_geocoder and address_standardizer extension file option only available for PostGIS 2.1+ and PostgreSQL 9.1+.

If you are running PostgreSQL 9.2 or higher and have installed PostGIS 2.0 or 2.1 (you can download and extract into your PostgreSQL install folder the pgRouting 2.0dev package and do)


For loading OpenStreetMap data (OSM) into pgrouting format, you can use osm2po or osm2pgrouting. Windows binaries for osm2pgrouting can be found in the 9.4 extras folder and should work fine with 9.3 or 9.4 installs. Make sure to use the 32-bit with 32-bit PostgreSQL install and 64-bit for PostgreSQL 64-bit install (copying the .dlls into your respective PostgreSQL/bin folder). Instructions for install and loading data are provided in the included readme.

If you are running PostgreSQL 9.3 (x64,x32) or 9.4 (x32, x64) and have installed PostGIS 2.2.0dev (you have the sfcgal extension for advanced 3D support)

CREATE EXTENSION postgis_sfcgal;
ALTER DATABASE your_db_here 
 SET postgis.backend = sfcgal;

See the install section for more guidance.
