There is no port of GHC to 64-bit Windows yet.  Various people have 
expressed an interest in having one, but it is a significant chunk of 
work to implement (plus extra work to maintain and build distributions), 
so we don't have any plans to do it in the short term.

You can track progress (or lack thereof) by adding your email to the CC 
on the ticket:


If you want to help out, join cvs-ghc at haskell.org and we can help with 
pointers to what needs to be done.
