We don't do this with GHC.

You have to set PATH as usual (I presume that is in autoexec.bat on Windows

I suspect this problem has more to do with the bug in ghci.exe (see the 
fixed version posted by Sigbjorn; I'll be uploading a fixed InstallShield 
as soon as I can fix one or two other serious problems) than any error in 
your command line, which looks fine.
