Windows Support for GHC

Versions supported

We no longer support Windows 95, 98, ME or NT. We do support 2000, XP and Vista.

Building 32-bit Windows programs

Current releases of GHC provide a 32bit Windows version for building 32bit programs on Windows. It ships with a small MinGW system bundled, which provides tools (such as a C compiler, linker and assembler) that are used by the compiler.

Building 64-bit Windows programs

Releases of GHC since 7.6.1 also provide a 64bit Windows version for building 64bit programs on Windows. It ships with a MinGW-w64 system bundled, which provides tools (such as a C compiler, linker and assembler) that are used by the compiler.

Building on Windows

Build instructions for Windows are incorporated in the Building Guide. In particular, here is how to set up your Windows system for building GHC.
