Ticket #114 (closed defect: fixed)

Opened 8 years ago

Last modified 8 years ago

Cabal can't find ar.exe on Windows.

Reported by: jputnam Owned by: dons
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: Platform Keywords:


The command runhaskell setup build fails with setup: ar is required but it could not be found. The directory ar.exe is in isn't on the path, and adding it to the path fixes the problem, but relying on ar.exe being in the path could cause problems with separate MinGW installations.

This should already be fixed in Cabal- is the current darcs version on the stable 1.8 branch. If someone can confirm the bug is fixed with that version, that'd be great.

The next stable Cabal release will be which I am testing currently. The final HP release should use this version.

For the 2010.1.0.0 release I'm just adding $INSTDIR/mingw/bin to PATH.
