The ones installed from former One-Click are built using Microsoft
Visual C 6.0, that defines the Ruby platform as i386-mswin32.

The new ones are built with MinGW (GCC) and the platform is i386-
mingw32

Both remains binary compatible because they link to the exact same C
Runtime library (MSVCRT.DLL) but sometimes the gems compiled or built
against VC6 will not work on MinGW, or viceversa.

The new shape of installer and the reason for be that way is better
explained and covered here:

I made this announcement a few weeks ago:

http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.ruby/browse_thread/thread/c38255aacd68d6dc

But you can search for all my answers at google groups (just search
for Ruby Installer)

Hope all this information helps.

Thanks for your reply Luis!
I sincerely appreciate your job developing ruby installer.

Actually, my question is about what differs this
http://rubyforge.org/frs/download.php/18566/ruby186-25.exe from this
ftp://ftp.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/binaries/mswin32/ruby-1.8.6-i386-mswin32.zip
except for the fact there is a instalation wizard :stuck_out_tongue:

Well, you need then to better format your questions, because I read
your messages twice and couldn’t find that specific question.

The file available at ruby-lang FTP server is not a complete and
functional installation of Ruby.

I requested Ruby-Core and website maintainers to state that at the
downloads page:

http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/downloads/

"Please note that some of the above binaries will require manual
download and installation of additional components detailed on this
page. Please ensure you’ve followed/performed these steps prior
reporting a bug.

The O.-Click Installer does not require these additional tasks."

And my request and the reasoning behind it:

Playing more dumb on your question, you’re pointing to a Ruby
installer version 1.8.5, which differs A LOT from 1.8.6 ir 1.9.1,
which I’m not going to explain over here.

Booth are links that I posted here. Where is version 1.8.5 that you
mentioned?

Sorry, 186-25 confused me. Anyhow…

Those libs that are not in binaries zip file are very important. Why
ruby developers didn’t include them in binaries zip file?

Dunno, ask them, tried since 2006 without any success.

Thanks for your reply.

Look for “Ruby Em Windows” at http://www.ruby-lang.org/pt/downloads/

Ruby 1.8.6 One-Click Installer (md5: 3b768d48ed4e25991762e8c76e54f28d)
