Hey Guys, Anyone have success installing the rubynode package. I've tried both the gem install and the setup.rb without any success. The messages returned by each method are shown below. Any hints would be greatly appreciated. C:\ruby>gem install rubynode Building native extensions. This could take a while... ERROR: While executing gem ... (RuntimeError) ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension. Gem files will remain installed in c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rubynode-0.1.2 for inspection. Results logged to c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rubynode-0.1.2/ext/rubynode_ext/gem_make.out *** I checked the gem_make.out file for clues but it was empty.

You need a compiler (and its environment) to compile and install binary gems.
