#360: Cabal won't configure on Windows Vista
  Reporter:  guest          |        Owner:       
      Type:  defect         |       Status:  new  
  Priority:  normal         |    Milestone:       
 Component:  Cabal library  |      Version:       
  Severity:  normal         |     Keywords:       
Difficulty:  normal         |   Ghcversion:  6.8.3
  Platform:  Windows        |  
 Running Windows Vista, I get a link error with the latest Cabal:

 C:\Users\Justin\Source\Cabal->ghc --version
 The Glorious Glasgow Haskell Compilation System, version 6.8.3

 C:\Users\Justin\Source\Cabal->runhaskell Setup.hs configure

 During interactive linking, GHCi couldn't find the following symbol:
   SHGetFolderPathA at 20
 This may be due to you not asking GHCi to load extra object files,
 archives or DLLs needed by your current session.  Restart GHCi, specifying
 the missing library using the -L/path/to/object/dir and -lmissinglibname
 flags, or simply by naming the relevant files on the GHCi command line.
 Alternatively, this link failure might indicate a bug in GHCi.
 If you suspect the latter, please send a bug report to:
   glasgow-haskell-bugs at haskell.org
