Add cabal binaries to PATH

Reported by: mcandre Owned by: refold
Priority: minor Milestone: 2012.4.0.0
Component: Windows installer Keywords: windows path cabal binaries executables installer

Description

Could future installers add C:\Users\SOME_USER\AppData\Roaming\cabal\bin to PATH ?

Sure, we can add it manually, but newbies shouldn't have to figure out why this happens:

C:\>cabal install bloxorz
...
C:\>bloxorz
'bloxorz' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

Ah, that's because cabal now installs everything to the user's home directory by default. Sure, this can be done.

This was fixed in some previous release. We add "$APPDATA\cabal\bin" to HKCU/PATH.
