Thank you for providing more detailed information.

I misunderstood before. I thought that there was an issue installing the HP
2013.2.0.0. I see now that the problem is with installing Agda.

For what it's worth, I bet you could `cabal unpack Agda` and edit the cabal
file to relax the constraint on base. If that works you might be able to
build your own windows installer.
