I have used Windows7x64 and want start PostgreSQL+POSTGIS without installation process. I copy PostgresSQl\9.1 folder from other laptop to c:\opt. I need create .bat file with enviroment variables and add pg_ctl.exe with any parameters. is it possible start Postgresql server without creating Windows services and using any regedit manipulations? Sorry if my question is not correct compiled

The client has to know what port the database is listening to etc.
What you can do is setting up the database identically on two computers, and exchange the data directories if needed.
