Hi Shelarcy,

Could you tell me what error message you see during the installation?
If it is in Japan then translate it in English ;-). Also it can help
if you run the installer with logging:

$ msiexec VSHaskell71.msi /l log.txt

In the Visual Haskell\bin directory you can see one directory called
1033 with vs_haskell_ui.dll in it. vs_haskell_ui.dll contains various
string resources used in Visual Haskell. For each supported language
you need to have a different directory and 1033 is the code used for
English. I don't know the code required for Japan but you can look at
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\bin directory and see
what code VC++ is using. After that try to rename the 1033 directory
to what is required for Japan. Tell me whether that works.
