[pgrouting-users] Install Pg Routing in Windows environment?

Hi everyone,

A couple of basic questions that I hope someone could help me with.

  1. I note that PGRouting with Windows Binaries is on version 8.4.2 ( http://www.pgrouting.org/download.html#windows-binaries ). Could someone please confirm which version of PostgreSQL I should install to ensure that PGRouting works with it? List here: http://www.enterprisedb.com/products-services-training/pgdownload . As an aside I will be wanting to use PostGIS too, but I hope/prsume that this is largely unrelated to my question.

  2. I have a road network that I use in ArcGIS at the moment, stored in an access database, but I would like to use it in PG Routing instead. Could someone talk me through how to do this or provide a link to a guide? I thought that I could perhaps save it as a Shapefile and then use the QGIS ‘Spit’ tool to move it into the PostgreSQL database. Would this be a suitable method? Will it work?

Thank you and best wishes
