Is the Haskell code in a DLL? If the main EXE and the DLL (or DLLs) can
all reside in the same directory on the server, you don't have to do
anything special. You just run the application from the client machine
as if it were local, specifying the full network path to the executable;


If there are updateable configuration files or other such things that
need to be maintained on a per-user basis, then you have to be a little
more careful to make sure that they're saved on the client machines
instead of at the server; if you use the system registry for that, then
it pretty much automatically takes care of those details, too.
