Many package developers only work on Unix/Linux and don't test on Windows.
Haskell is not a monolith controlled by a single entity that guarantees
that everything always works everywhere.

You are probably better off overriding the installation to use a path not
containing spaces, or sticking to packages known to work on Windows (you
may need to find this out by asking around).
