I've installed GHC 6.6 on Windows. When I try to use the gcc shipped with the installation I get the following:

$ c:/ghc/ghc-6.6/gcc.exe -c check.c
gcc.exe: installation problem, cannot exec `cc1': No such file or directory

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling GHC but that had no effect.

I'm using the .msi version.

Could you confirm or deny whether this is on a machine running Vista?

This is on a machine running XP SP 2. So the answer is no, no Vista.

OK thanks, there's a known bug on that front, hence the Q.

What you're trying to do isn't supported -- .c files should be compiled via the GHC driver directly --

c:/ghc/ghc-6.6/bin/ghc -c check.c

If you refuse to go that route, try adding -Bc:/ghc/ghc-6.6/gcc-lib to your invocation of gcc.

I'm surprised to hear that this is not supported. I've been using it since GHC 5.04 at least. But your fix works so I'm happy anyway.

I'm resolving this ticket as "invalid" since you don't support this use case.
