Good afternoon:

     Step 1 ['cabal install gtk2hs-buildtools'] ran successfully.

     This is what 'echo %lib%' gives:
             C:\Users\User>echo %lib%
             C:\Program Files\Gtk+\lib;C:\Program Files (x86)\Gtk+\lib

       This is whatpkg-config --modversion gtk+-2.0 gives:
             C:\Users\User>pkg-config --modversion gtk+-2.0

Thanks again
