Progress on  the Windows installer.

Can Windows users (around 40% of Platform users) help out Mikhail by
testing and reporting bugs?

I've uploaded the candidate 2010.1.0.0 installer to


It has two known serious issues:

* cabal-install version is 0.8.0, which is known to be buggy on
Windows (I couldn't compile the darcs version).

* regex-posix doesn't work. The error is described in [1], and I
haven't found out how to fix it yet.

On the bright side, HP on Windows now comes bundled with WinGHCi.
