I am trying to install yesod, 
But it fails and one of the failures is to install http-conduit.

So I tried to install that, and it fails, with this message:

     Building http-conduit-
     Preprocessing library http-conduit-
     <command line>: cannot satisfy -package-id asn1-data-0.7.1-25c9f2b3799c26151af97c0d9c79754c:
    asn1-data-0.7.1-25c9f2b3799c26151af97c0d9c79754c is unusable due to missing or recursive dependencies:
    (use -v for more information)
     Failed to install http-conduit-
     cabal.exe: Error: some packages failed to install:
     http-conduit- failed during the building phase. The exception was:
     ExitFailure 1

Any hints?

I find that with each usage of cabal-install, my success rate and appreciation for it falls!  :-)
Each time it fails, and says to -force-reinstalls, that breaks more, etc... Not sure how to break out of this maze of "twisty turny passages that all look alike"..

Haskell-platform 2.0.0, GHCi, version 7.4.1
cabal-install version 0.14.0
using version 1.14.0 of the Cabal library
