I think you're going to have to find a way to compile C code on your machine
(mingw, cygwin, etc) or find a binary distribution of one of the PostgreSQL
modules. I use psycopg. You should be able to find a binary installer for
one of the possibilities.
You could also start development on Linux and when it's good enough, maybe a
Windows person will step in to help out.
