1 Installing on Windows

Follow SkyTreeBird's guide. It which walks you through the basic steps

  • wx-config
  • wxPack
  • setting up environment variables
  • cabal install wx

Note that the best way to refer to WxWidgets in your PATH is probably to use the WXWIN variable that you set, eg. %WXWIN%/lib/gcc_dll

The guide has been tested with the following configurations. Others may work too:

Windows Haskell Platform wxWidgets
XP 2010.2.0.0 2.8.10
7 2011.2.0.1 2.8.12

1.1 Troubleshooting installation with cabal

These remarks refer to wx-0.13.2 and Haskell Platform 2011.4.0.0 on Windows 7.

Cabal package wx depends on wxcore which depends on wxdirect. By default cabal installs on a per user base, thus wxdirect.exe will be installed to c:\Users\<YOUR NAME>\AppData\Roaming\cabal\bin\. This folder must be in your PATH for cabal install wxcore to succeed.

Package wxcore-0.13.2 does not work well with wx-config revision 21 2006-10-19 (downloaded from here on Feb 2nd 2012). If cabal install wxcore fails with an output containing "Usage: wx-config [options]" try this:

  • cabal unpack wxcore
  • cd wxcore-0.13.2
  • edit Setup.hs and comment out/remove the line containing "wx-config" ["--version"]
  • runhaskell.exe Setup.hs configure --user
  • runhaskell.exe Setup.hs build
  • runhaskell.exe Setup.hs install

Finally call cabal install wx.
