SHGetFolderPath link error
Vivian McPhail On Win9x with GHC 6.4.1 Attempting to compile Cabal setup.exe is linked to missing export SHELL32.DLL:SHGetFolderPathA There is a dll named ShFolder.dll which can be downloaded from microsoft to provide this function. I note that libshfolder.a is also to be found in $GHC/gcc-lib directory. I have (manually) added "ShFolder" to extraLibraries of Cabal in package.conf, which fixed the problem when running GHCi. However, when running the Cabal package setup.exe the above error (in a dialog box) occurs. I ran ghc with -v to see the libraries linked against, and they included -lshfolder. I cannot figure out what is going wrong here. Does shell32 say it exports the function and thus prevent ShFolder from providing it?
