I would like to know if PostgreSQL 16 is available to Windows images using "Visual Studio 2022" ?

If it is not, what is the latest version and how to use it?

Best regards

    Current pre-installed databases can be found here. Latest version on Visual studio 2022 image is 15.2.2. Here is how you could use it in a project.
    If you think we should consider adding 16 to the next image update, you could create an issue here.

    Hi Owen,

    I followed the links and in pre-installed databases I found "PostgreSQL 15.2 x64", but in docs I didn't find how to setup the service the version 15, only for "postgresql13".

    After try to set the services as "postgresql15" I got a connection error.

    Could you help to properly setup "postgresql15"?

    I changed from

      - postgresql15


      - ps: Start-Service postgresql-x64-15

    and worked normally.

    Sorry, I hadn't noticed that the docs are lagging. Start-Service at init stage is the correct approach for now.
