    Hi, on windows 7 am I correct in saying that all the software required by eclipsefp is installed in the following location? Thanks : C:\Users\eclipseuser\AppData\Roaming\cabal

    Yes, that's where things go on my machine when doing an user install, which is the default.

    Incidentally I noticed that in my C:\Users\eclipseuser\AppData\Roaming\cabal directory there are NO haskell source files. Does cabal delete the files after compiling? There are only .hi, .o, .a files.

    Actually I just realised that it tells you if you watch the installation process. For example in windows XP it is C:\Document and Settings\eclipseuser\Local Settings\Temp (during the installation process). After installation it seems to be removed.

    C:\Users\eclipseuser\AppData\Roaming\cabal\packages\hackage.haskell.org contains the downloaded source packages.
