What package do install to get access to "psql" client on windows xp? I don't want to install a server, only the command-line client, and maybe pg_dump and co.

I am connecting to Postgresql 8.4 server.

Just download the Windows binaries (zip-file) and only extract the programs you need.

You can install the PostgreSQL Installer (pginstaller) package and when asked which package to install, unselect everything except PostgreSQL/User Interfaces/psql
