Ticket #922 (new defect)
“lexical error (UTF-8 decoding error)” in WIndows 7
|Reported by:||hamukazu||Owned by:|
When I type
cabal install cabal
it fails with the following error:
Distribution\Compat\Exception.hs:0:4: lexical error (UTF-8 decoding error)
It happens with 64 bit version of Windows 7.
It came to occur after I failed to install HXT. (I am not sure it is related.)
in command line, cabal comes to work.
I regard this is just a workaround and this issue should be reported as a bug.
