+
== wxWidgets 2.9 and wxHaskell 0.90.x ==
 
+
As wxHaskell 0.92 is not released yet, this installation procedure uses the source code obtained from GitHub.
+
We will install wxWidgets with the GCC that is packaged with GHC, to prevent incompatibilities between object/archive files.
+
<br>
+
You need mingw32-make.exe from [http://www.mingw.org/ MinGW] and sh.exe from [http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/files/MSYS/ MSYS] in your search path. If you do not have it yet, install [http://git-scm.com/ GIT].
+
Download [https://sourceforge.net/projects/wxhaskell/files/wx-config-win/ wx-config.exe] (a new version for wxWidgets > 3.0) and copy it somewhere into your search path. Install the  [http://wxwidgets.org/ wxWidgets source] in C:\Libs\wxWidgets\3.0.2

Commands to compile wxWidgets and wxHaskell with Haskell Platform 2014.2.0.0:
+
<pre>
+
Set WXWIDGETS_VERSION=3.0.2
+
Set WXWIN=C:\Libs\wxWidgets\%WXWIDGETS_VERSION%
+
Cd %WXWIN%\build\msw
+
</pre>
+
Edit %WXWIN%\config.gcc so that the following values are set:
+
<pre>
+
SHARED ?= 1
+
BUILD ?= release
+
</pre>
+
If you want to compile 64 bit binaries, set the following as well:
+
<pre>
+
# Standard flags for CC
+
CFLAGS ?= -m64
+
 
+
# Standard flags for C++
+
CXXFLAGS ?= -m64
+
 
+
# Standard preprocessor flags (common for CC and CXX)
+
CPPFLAGS ?= -D_M_AMD64
+
</pre>
+
 
+
Edit ..\..\include\wx\msw\setup.h, change line 788 from
+
<pre>
+
#  define wxUSE_GRAPHICS_CONTEXT 0
+
</pre>
+
to
+
<pre>
+
#  define wxUSE_GRAPHICS_CONTEXT 1
+
</pre>
+
<br>
+
Next, enter the commands (some editing needed):
+
<pre>
+
Set HASKELL_COMPILER_DIR=C:\Program Files\Haskell Platform\2014.2.0.0
+
Set PATH=%HASKELL_COMPILER_DIR%\mingw\libexec\gcc\mingw32\4.5.2\;%HASKELL_COMPILER_DIR%\lib\extralibs\bin;%HASKELL_COMPILER_DIR%\bin;%HASKELL_COMPILER_DIR%\mingw\bin;%path%

=== DLLs ===
 
 
In order to run a wxHaskell application, Windows must be able to find the following wxWidgets DLLs (see [http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/7d83bc18(v=vs.71).aspx Search Path Used by Windows to Locate a DLL]):
 
 
* wxWidgets-x.y.z\lib\gcc_dll\*.dll
 
 
The following file can be found in directory wxc\dist\build\, after building package wxc in directory wxc:
 
* wxc.dll (be sure to recompile and copy this one when you compile your application with a new compiler)
 
 
Furthermore, the following DLLs need to be in the search path (these can be found in directory "Haskell Platform\2014.2.0.0\mingw\bin\", or in ghc-7.10.1\mingw\bin\ if you installed the compiler only (change revision as needed)):
 
* libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll
 
* libstdc++-6.dll
 
* mingwm10.dll
 
 
Some wxHaskell applications also require the following DLLs:
 
* uuid.dll
 
* perl510.dll
 
* libapr-1.dll
 
* libapriconv-1.dll
 
* libaprutil-1.dll
 
 
These DLLs can be obtained by installing [http://sourceforge.net/projects/xampp/files/XAMPP%20Windows/1.7.4/ XAMPP 1.7.4]; the DLLs are in the directories:
 
* xampp\perl\site\lib\auto\APR\UUID
 
* xampp\perl\bin
 
* xampp\apache\bin
 
 
If there are still DLLs missing, you can find out which, using [http://cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/using-utils.html cygcheck] from the [http://www.cygwin.com/ Cygwin project]. Note, that you will get problems if you have both MinGW and Cygwin in your search path; it is best to specify the full path to cygcheck.exe, or copy cygcheck.exe to some location in the search path.
 
Sample command:
 
  C:\programs\cygwin\bin\cygcheck.exe .\h.exe
 
(the .\ must be specified)

1 wxWidgets 2.9 and wxHaskell 0.90.x

Windows Haskell Platform wxWidgets
7 2011.2.0.1 2.9.3


Prerequisites:

  • MinGW 5.1.6 and MSYS 0.1.11 (these are the latest versions at the time of writing). You must select the C++ compiler option when installing MinGW.

Environment variables:

  • CABAL_DIR: C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Roaming\cabal
  • GHC_VERSION: 7.0.3 (for our convenience)
  • WXC_VERSION: 0.90.0.2
  • WXWIN: C:\wxWidgets-2.9.3
  • WXCFG: gcc_dll\mswu
  • PATH: (add these) %WXWIN%\lib\gcc_dll;%WXWIN%;%CABAL_DIR%\wxc-%WXC_VERSION%\%GHC_VERSION%

Steps:

  1. Download wxWidgets 2.9.3 source
  2. Extract to C:\wxWidgets-2.9.3
  3. Build wxWidgets-2.9.3
    I (who?) compiled it as follows: edit wxwidgets-src-dir\build\msw\config.gcc so that the following values are set:
     SHARED ?= 1
     BUILD ?= release
    

    Then (in cmd.exe, not bash):

     cd wxwidgets-src-dir\build\msw
     mingw32-make -f makefile.gcc
    
  4. Download wx-config.exe (a new version for wxWidgets > 2.9) and copy it somewhere into your path, for instance via
    cp wx-config.exe %CABAL_DIR%\bin
    
  5. Install the wxHaskell libraries
    cabal install wxdirect
    cabal install wxc
    cabal install wxcore
    cabal install wx
    

2 wxWidgets 2.8 and wxHaskell 0.13.x

Follow SkyTreeBird's guide. It which walks you through the basic steps

  • wx-config
  • wxPack
  • setting up environment variables
  • cabal install wx

Note that the best way to refer to WxWidgets in your PATH is probably to use the WXWIN variable that you set, eg. %WXWIN%/lib/gcc_dll

The guide has been tested with the following configurations. Others may work too:

Windows Haskell Platform wxWidgets
XP 2010.2.0.0 2.8.10
7 2011.2.0.1 2.8.12

2.1 Troubleshooting installation with cabal

These remarks refer to wx-0.13.2 and Haskell Platform 2011.4.0.0 on Windows 7.

Cabal package wx depends on wxcore which depends on wxdirect. By default cabal installs on a per user base, thus wxdirect.exe will be installed to c:\Users\<YOUR NAME>\AppData\Roaming\cabal\bin\. This folder must be in your PATH for cabal install wxcore to succeed.

Package wxcore-0.13.2 does not work well with wx-config revision 21 2006-10-19 (downloaded from here on Feb 2nd 2012). If cabal install wxcore fails with an output containing "Usage: wx-config [options]" try this:

  • cabal unpack wxcore
  • cd wxcore-0.13.2
  • edit Setup.hs and comment out/remove the line containing "wx-config" ["--version"]
  • runhaskell.exe Setup.hs configure --user
  • runhaskell.exe Setup.hs build
  • runhaskell.exe Setup.hs install

Finally call cabal install wx.
