Has anyone else encountered this?  It's ok for us, and for at least some
other people.  Perhaps uninstall and reinstall?  You can't overlook
anything when installing, assuming you use the pre-packaged installer.

Subject: [Haskell-cafe] ghc-pkg on Windows XP



  I have installed ghc-6.4.2 on a windows XP machine. However, the
machine refuses to execute ghc-pkg (thus preventing me from using Cabal)
and complains that "C:\ghc\ghc-6.4.2\bin\ghc-pkg.exe is not a valid
Win32 application."  Is there something obvious I might have overlooked
while installing? 

Also, I am new to using ghc on windows and was wondering what are the
trade-offs of using cygwin or minsys versus just living in a emacs
