Hello all.

I'm having the following problem and I can't seem to find a solution
for it:
running "gem install rails" on a Windows environment generates
"ERROR:  While executing gem ... (Zlib::BufError)    buffer error"

I've tried  'gem update --system', but with no success. I am out of
sollutions but not out of hope (yet).
Please, can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks a lot,

What version of Ruby are you running?
