    1 This page is aimed at developers building GHC on the Windows platform (on x86 hardware).  Please add to this page. 
     1= Windows Support for GHC = 
    22 
    3 = Versions supported = 
     3== Versions supported == 
    44 
    55We no longer support Windows 95, 98, ME or NT. We do support 2000, XP and Vista. We do not support 64-bit windows operating systems (#1884). 
    66 
    7 = Building GHC on Windows = 
     7== Building on Windows == 
    88 
    9 First places to look is the Building Guide.  Specifically: 
    10  * [http://www.haskell.org/ghc/docs/latest/html/building/platforms.html#cygwin-and-mingw Stuff about Cyginw and MSYS].  GHC builds many, many times faster if you use MSYS than Cygwin. 
    11  * [http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/Building/Windows Instructions for building under Windows] 
     9Build instructions for Windows are incorporated in the [wiki:Building Building Guide].  In particular, here is how to [wiki:Building/Prerequisites#PreparingaWindowssystem set up your Windows system for building GHC].

    13 == Common problems == 
    14  
    15 If you get a message like this: 
    16 {{{ 
    17 Can't locate object method "path" via package "Autom4te::Request" (perhaps you forgot to load "Autom4te::Request"?) at /usr/bin/autom4te line 81. 
    18 Can't locate object method "path" via package "Autom4te::Request" (perhaps you forgot to load "Autom4te::Request"?) at /usr/bin/autom4te line 81. 
    19 autoreconf: /usr/bin/autoconf failed with exit status: 1 
    20 }}} 
    21 then you have probably not got {{{automake}}} installed (or at least findable).
