What environment variables do you have in mind? AFAIR WinGHCi reads information from the registry.

This probably happens when doing "Just unpack" install. Will need to patch WinGHCi to look in $CURRENT_DIR and $CURRENT_DIR/../bin.

The real problem here seems to be that the PATH is not set to include the GHCi directory. The only way to make WinGHCi run without modifying the PATH currently seems to be to copy it to the bin directory containing ghci.exe.
