     9Current releases of GHC support building 32bit programs on Windows. They ship with a small [http://mingw.org/ MinGW] system bundled, which provides tools (such as a C compiler, linker and assembler) that are used by the compiler.

     13No current release of GHC supports building 64bit programs on Windows, but there is an [http://www.haskell.org/ghc/dist/win64_alpha1/ alpha release] that does, and it is expected that from GHC 7.6 it will be a supported platform.

     17There are currently no known bugs that are specific to 64-bit Windows. If you encounter any problems, please [http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/ReportABug file a bug].
