[Haskell-cafe] Search for documentation as data fails with Haskell Platform on Windows 7

I contributed the CPSA package to Hackage, and tried using it on a PC
running Windows 7.  The package installs six executables and
documentation as PDF and XHTML into the package's data directory.
Haskell Platform with Cabal installs the package without a problem.
It was actually quite smooth and simple.  So far so good.

The trouble came when I tried to locate the documentation.  The XHTML
document is called cpsauser.html, but the search command on Windows 7
cannot find the document.  Is there some way to tell it to try harder?
 How are users supposed to know how to locate program documentation
when using Windows 7?

I'm not much of a Windows user, so let me apologize in advance if this
is a silly question, and search is, in fact, easy.
