I am trying to set up GHC with wxHaskell and run a couple of samples
in Win2K Professional.
I have GHC in c:\Program Files\ghc-6.2.1\
and wxHaskell in c:\Program Files\wxhaskell-0,8\
The setup batch file for wxHaskell could not register the packages, or
copy the DLL to the system32 directory. I manually copied the DLL,
and tried to register the packages with GHC. I set the PATH
environment variable to include the GHC directory.
I am typing the following commands and the command prompt:
ghc-pkg -u -i "c:\progra~1\wxhaskell-0.8\bin\wxcore.pkg"
ghc-pkg -u -i "c:\progra~1\wxhaskell-0.8\bin\wx.pkg"
Each time, I get an error 'Unable to expand variable "wxhlibdir"' when
the program is trying to expand embedded variables.
I went ahead and put GHC in my program file directory because I did
not intend to use cygwin (which I understand has a problem with spaces
in file/dir names). Usually, however, using "Progra~1" instead of
"Program Files" allows programs which don't like spaces to run. Could
this be the problem?
Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?
