Hi Benjamin*,*
The only requirement to run WinGhci is to have GHC installed and to have GHC
bin directory on your path. The way to start the application is by executing
winghci.exe. Install.exe is an small program that associates .hs files with
WinGhci (it should be run from the same directory where WinGhci is
installed). Note that this association is optional. I have added a wiki page
on this.

WinGhci icon is different (although quite similar) from GHCi icon, at least
for medium to large icon sizes.
