Ticket #104 (closed defect: invalid)
cabal issue with installation on windows Vista (and probably Win7)
|Reported by:||rhinoryan||Owned by:|
I installed the current version of the Haskell Platform to the default location.
When trying to use cabal to update itself and grab new packages, I noticed that cabal kept putting the files it downloaded into "c:\Program Files\Haskell", which is not the default Haskell Platform install location. I think the issue may lie in the cabal config file, but I haven't uninstalled and checked this. I ended up just installing to c:\Program Files\Haskell to avoid it.
