Thanks Thibaut, I tried that, and get the same error. Maybe I should try
older binaries.

Apart from that, I want to make sure, that my approach to embedding
in a .NET app is right (didn't find any tutorials on embedding):

1) Add references to IronRuby.dll, IronRuby.Libraries.dll,
Microsoft.Scripting.dll and Microsoft.Scripting.Core.dll
2) Create a engine like this

var engine = IronRuby.Ruby.CreateEngine();

and then executie ruby code on the engine itself with Execute, or
code into a ScriptSource and execute that.
Are there any steps missing? ir.exe has a config file. I don't need one
get iron ruby basically running, do I?
The standard library is embedded in IronRuby.Libraries.dll, so I don't
to set a load path, right?

I would be willing to write a tutorial on embedding once I got
together and working.

Thanks for clarification,
