I have a old db running version 7.2.2 on linux and am in the process of updating the install to a windows xp box. I want to use the latest db version ( 8.1.3) and am having difficulty figuring out how to copy my data from the old one to the other. I tried the pg_dump tool which i used in the past to copy data from one 7.2.2 installation to another 7.2.2 installtion on linux and it worked just fine but when i try it now using the pg_restore utility it gives me errors saying the format is wrong. Can anyone provide me with the proper instructions to accompilsh this?
