[Haskell-cafe] com-1.2.3 - problems installing

Hi all,

I'm trying to install com-1.2.3 on Win XP with ghc-6.10.3

I get this error message:

Resolving dependencies...
Configuring com-1.2.3...
cabal: Missing dependencies on foreign libraries:
* Missing header file: include/WideStringSrc.h
* Missing C libraries: kernel32, user32, ole32, oleaut32, advapi32
This problem can usually be solved by installing the system packages that
provide these libraries (you may need the "-dev" versions). If the libraries
are already installed but in a non-standard location then you can use the
flags --extra-include-dirs= and --extra-lib-dirs= to specify where they are.
cabal: Error: some packages failed to install:
com-1.2.3 failed during the configure step. The exception was:
exit: ExitFailure 1
