I think the point is that the original poster does not have Windows,
therefore double clicking on the installer will not help.  :-)

He has a Linux machine, and is trying to cross-compile for a Windows
target machine.  Thus, he needs to persuade his (Linux) GHC to use
the mingw GCC cross-compiler as a back-end, the goal being to end up
effectively with his GHC as a cross-compiler.

A great (if brave) idea, I think you'll agree.
