Works fine for me on two machines.

I always install to a path like "C:\Haskell\Platform\2013.2.0.0", maybe 
that works better for you, too.


PS. I then put a directory symlink from




so that I can add the C:\Haskell\Platform\current directory to the PATH 
environment variable and never have to change it again. And I configure 
all paths in my cabal configuration file to point to 
C:\Haskell\Platform\current\something, so I get a fresh start when I 
install a new Haskell platform and update the symlink. So far, this 
setup has served me well.
