I'm using PgAdminPortable and I'd like to enable « PostGIS Shapefile and DBF loader » plugin. The issue is that the files are not structured as in a PostgreSQL complete install (see below).

enter image description here

I have tried the following steps:

  1. Add the lines below (see end of post) into D:\PgAdminPortable\App\PgAdmin\plugins.d\pugins.ini file. The plugin appears now correctly inside the plugins dropdown within pgAdmin, but when clicking it, I'm asked several DLLs files.
  2. Create a postgisgui folder within D:\PgAdminPortable\App\PgAdmin.
  3. Copy - paste missing DLLs files from a local PostgreSQL install into D:\PgAdminPortable\App\PgAdmin(I have no bin directory within PgAdminPortable folder). There are about 10 files missing. Once copied, I get a new error message saying that the program could not start...
