I cannot update cabal on windows seven. When running cabal install cabal-install, I get the following error:
cabal install cabal-install
Linking C:\Users\sberg\AppData\Local\Temp\Cabal-188.8.131.52-10956\Cabal-184.108.40.206\dist\setup\setup.exe ...
setup.exe: does not exist
Failed to install Cabal-220.127.116.11
cabal: Error: some packages failed to install:
Cabal-18.104.22.168 failed during the configure step. The exception was:
cabal-install-22.214.171.124 depends on Cabal-126.96.36.199 which failed to install.
I could not find any information on haskellwiki/cabal faq. Am I missing something? I am using the version 2013.2.0.0 of the haskell platform for windows.
What I tried:
%USER%/AppData/Roaming/cabal/bin is in my PATH
cabal install Cabal
I have eclipseFP installed.
This was likely caused by incorrect ld overriding the one that came with GHC; fixed in 1.20 (#1528).
Please reopen if still happens.
