Unable to start WinHugs
Thu, 21 Mar 2002 16:50:28 -0800
this one is a bit mysterious. I managed to reproduce it a while ago with a
version of XP (and fixed it by simply re-installing Hugs), but am unable to
it now when upgrading a vanilla Win 98 install with the RTM version of XP.
In the less-than-likely event that it'll tell me something interesting,
send me a copy of the Prelude.hs WinHugs is failing on + line number?
btw, It is also worth checking that the uninstall completely deletes the
Hugs98/ directory before installing Hugs98 again.

I can't start up WinHugs anymore. Whevever I try to do so, the Hugs
interpreter window shows up as normal, but with: ERROR - Illegal character
escape sequence "\W" . A Hugs popup shows up: FATAL ERROR: Unable to
I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Hugs (I'm using the 12/01 version)
but to no avail.
I hope the info provided will help you resolve what's wrong and let me run
WinHugs again. If you need any more info, please feel free to contact me
