I have seen wxHaskell work on WIndows 7, using the same configuration 
that works for me on Win XP and Vista (small test program)

namely GHC 6.10.4   wxHaskell - uses wxWidgets-2.8.something

Installed from binaries.

To distribute a useable binary you send around a .exe plus the wxhaskell 

See http://www.scss.tcd.ie/Andrew.Butterfield/Saoithin/#bin

I hope to try this program out on Win 7 later today - I'll let you know 
how I got on...

So unless you really need all the extra goodies of platform 2010,
the current fix is to work back to ghc 6.10.4
