Ticket #454 (new defect)
file permissions of installed files on windows
|Reported by:||Toxaris||Owned by:|
When installing a binary on Windows Vista using ghc 6.10.1 and Cabal 220.127.116.11, it is not accessible for ordinary users. Old binaries installed with ghc 6.8.2 and Cabal 1.4 had "read" and "execute" permissions set for "all users", while new binaries have only permissions set for "administrators".
Cabal should set "read" and "execute" permissions for "all users" for binaries.
A workaround is to manually set these permissions using the executable's properties dialog.
