Interesting... But I don't see what could be wrong with my installation. 
I just downloaded and installed the binary installer from the Internet. 
I did have to expose the package ghc before GHCi could compile my code.

I also just tried a clean install of GHC-6.8.2 on a brand new Windows XP 
SP2 system (that never had any GHC nor GCC nor MINGW installed before), 
but that also gives the same error.

So I guess it runs fine on Linux (as you tested), but not on Windows?
