[Haskell-cafe] Trouble with winGHCi

Hi David

Maybe WinGHCi (the gui) it is failing to start GHCi (the interpreter)?
Though then going to a black screen of death is very bad.

On my system I can run WinGHCi from HP2010.2.0.0 - but it runs an old
version of GHCi. This makes me suspect it is using the /path/
environment variable to find GHCi.

What happens when you open a command prompt and type / ghci / ?

You should get something like this:

C:\Documents and Settings\me> ghci
GHCi, version 6.12.3: http://www.haskell.org/ghc/  :? for help
Loading package ghc-prim ... linking ... done.
Loading package integer-gmp ... linking ... done.
Loading package base ... linking ... done.
Loading package ffi-1.0 ... linking ... done.

Best wishes
