Can you please help me out in Installing pgRouting in Windows 7 64-bit version.

I have been trying it for days. Since I am completely new to this please provide me the initial requirements and steps in installing pgRouting.

Do you mean that you want to run pgRouting on Windows 7 64-bit OS?
If so, try as follows.

  1. Install PostgreSQL 9.1 (Win x86_32) and PostGIS (v1.5.x from StackBuilder).
  2. Download the pgRouting windows binary(pgRouting-git-sanak-mingw_20120310_pg-9.1(x86).zip) from , then extract to "C:\Program Files (x86)\PostgreSQL\9.1\" folder. (overwrite "doc", "lib", "share" folder)

If you want to run pgRouting as 64-bit mode (on PostgreSQL 9.1 (Win x86_64)),
AFAIK, pgRouting have not supported Windows 64-bit mode yet.

P.S. Short update. Now you can run 64-bit version of pgRouting on Win7 as well - pgRouting binaries built in 64-bit mode could be found by the provided above link on githun (thanks to Sanak!). It was checked with Postgres 9.1/PostGIS 2.0

Best you try the pgRouting workshop: Just start from chapter 5. You can download the sample data dumps from – dkastl Jun 7 '12 at 9:39
@sanak: Thank you for the great work. Is there a plan for PostgreSQL 9.2\PostGIS 2.0.2 compilation too? – Michalis Avraam Mar 26 '13 at 0:37
I am planning to create pgrouting-1.x windows binary for PostgreSQL 9.2 in the end of June '13, but if you like new one(pgrouting-2.0), please visit here( ). Thanks, – sanak Jun 26 '13 at 6:34
Best way to check: SELECT pgr_version(); – Magno C Jan 16 '14 at 15:08

Your question was just discussed on the pgRouting mailing list:

Currently there are no Windows 64bit binaries available, mainly because there were no 64bit Windows binaries available for PostGIS 1.5. Instead most people used 32Bit versions of PostgreSQL/PostGIS/pgRouting.
