Subject: Install wx on Windows XP

Hi Haskellers, I'm trying to install wxHaskell on Windows XP. I have already installed Haskell Platform 2012.04.0.0, MinGW and wxWidgets. When I try to install wx, I got the following error when cabal is installing wxcore: $ cabal install wx Resolving dependencies... [1 of 1] Compiling Main ( C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\wxcore- 0.90.0.3-896\wxcore-0.90.0.3\Setup.hs, C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\wxcore -0.90.0.3-896\wxcore-0.90.0.3\dist\setup\Main.o ) Linking C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\wxcore-0.90.0.3-896\wxcore-0.90.0.3\d ist\setup\setup.exe ...

The exception was: ExitFailure 1 It looks like it's confused by the spaces in the path and can't find the wxc.h file. I tried to configure cabal to install all user packages into a simpler directory. But cabal always install to the C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\cabal directory no matter how I change the config file there. Anyone knows how to fix this problem or change cabal directory on Windows? Thanks. p.s. I'm using the user Administrator.
