1) afair, you use nsis? installer size too large, adding this line to
.nsi should make it twice smaller:

SetCompressor /SOLID lzma

2) i propose to make default installation directory both for ghc and
extra libs the same, something like c:\haskell (if it's impossible to
install into c:\program files\haskell)

Best regards,
