Grab this: http://www.sqlite.org/sqlite-dll-win32-x86-3070500.zip
Extract the sqlite3.dll file from inside, copy it to c:\users\user and
to c:\windows\system32

Grab: http://www.sqlite.org/sqlite-autoconf-3070500.tar.gz
Extract the sqlite3.h file from inside, copy it to c:\users\user


> cabal install HDBC-sqlite3 --extra-include-dirs=C:\Users\User --extra-lib-dirs=C:\Users\User

should work.

I have only installed it though, I didn't run it.
