 That's because you don't have admin privileges (#62). The directories that
 are added to PATH are listed [https://github.com/23Skidoo/haskell-
 platform-windows/blob/master/Nsisfile.nsi here]:

   ${EnvVarUpdate} $0 "PATH" "P" "HKLM" "$INSTDIR\bin"
   ${EnvVarUpdate} $0 "PATH" "P" "HKLM" "$INSTDIR\lib\extralibs\bin"
   ${EnvVarUpdate} $0 "PATH" "P" "HKLM" "$PROGRAMFILES\Haskell\bin"
