Reproduced on mine too, I think I always have added that to the PATH as well.

Calling Microsoft Windows (TM) "Windoze" is a bad idea. Microsoft pay
for a good proportion of Haskell development, and hence showing them
at least basic politness seems only fair. It may seem cool to people
who dislike Windows, but in most cases, you are specifically asking
for the help of a Windows user, who kind of gets instantly disinclined
to help as soon as you suggest they (or their operating system of
choice) is "dozy". It's the same number of keys, and abbreviating it
to Win would be perfectly acceptable too!
