i try to install cabal with ghc 6.8.3 on XP.
i get the error message
GHCi could not find the following symbols
i saw some old bugs mentioning this problem - what is a current fix?
(Imported comment by @dcoutts on 2008-08-16)
The README file suggests:
ghc --make Setup
./Setup configure --user
So I don't see any obvious solutions at the moment. If the Win32 or directory package provided what we need then that'd be a great improvement.
Unless someone can see a solution I'm missing I'll have to mark this bug 'wontfix'.

I'd suggest a documentation fix, at least. I read those instructions but assumed "runhaskell/runghc" would be no different. Mentioning the issue in a README would be good.

Compiling Setup rather than using runghc Setup is much faster and works on
Windows. For all packages other than Cabal itself it is fine to use runghc.

This really isn't that hard. It just needs someone to bind these SHGetFolderPath functions and CLSID values etc in the Win32 package.
Need a Windows volunteer.

SHGetFolderPath is now bound in the System.Win32 module so this is now really easy. Just need someone to do it and test it.
