See [[WxHaskell#Documentation]] for up to date instructions
# wx-config is somewhere in the path
 
# The WXWIN environment variable points to the root of your wxWidgets installation
 
# WINDOWS PLATFORMS ONLY: You may also need to set WXCFG=gcc_dll\mswu
 
 
You can then install wxhaskell as follows (''in a Windows cmd.exe shell, not an MSys shell''):
 
 
> cabal update
 
> cabal install wx
 
 
Note that on Windows 7 machines, your command window must be running as Administrator, or you must use the '--user' flag to install to a local directory.
 
 
Note that on Unix systems, you may prefer something like
 
 
> sudo cabal install --global wx
 
 
Windows developers who don't update environment variables can do something like this in an MS-DOS shell:
 
 
> Set CPLUS_INCLUDE_PATH=C:\MinGW\include\c++\3.4.5;C:\MinGW\include\c++\3.4.5\mingw32\
 
> Set WXWIN=C:\path\to\wxWidgets-2.9.3
 
> Set WXCFG=gcc_dll\mswu
 
> cabal install wx
 
 
The Windows installation is global by default.
 
 
==== Out of memory errors ====
 
 
There have been reports of out of memory errors when compiling wxcore on some machines, notably 64 bit Linux hosts. Wxcore contains some very large auto-generated source files, and increasing the memory available to the GHC runtime can help.
 
 
Try something like:
 
 
> export GHCRTS='-M512m'
 
 
to allocate 512 MB to the GHC RTS. This has been reported to be sufficient.
