 When installing a binary on Windows Vista using ghc 6.10.1 and Cabal, it is not accessible for ordinary users. Old binaries installed
 with ghc 6.8.2 and Cabal 1.4 had "read" and "execute" permissions set for
 "all users", while new binaries have only permissions set for

 Cabal should set "read" and "execute" permissions for "all users" for

 A workaround is to manually set these permissions using the executable's
 properties dialog.
