64-bit Ruby? FXRuby

Environment: Windows without a WOW.

Is there a 64-bit version of 1.8.7 that will run in the environment,
above?

And, yes, I looked for the answer to the question. I found:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1698862/ruby-installer-on-windows-7-64-bit-machine
which does not help me much.

Bonus question: If there is, will FXRuby run in that environment?

Double Bonus question: Will FXRuby run in a JRuby environment?

There is not a 64-bit version of MRI Ruby 1.8.7 that runs on Windows.
You could run 64-bit JRuby. If you use the current master, you get
preliminary C extension support which may be far enough along to run
FXRuby.

I do not think the Rubyinstaller project is planning a 64-bit 1.8.x
release. I do know that they are working on a 64-bit 1.9.2 (or 1.9.3)
release. It’s a lot of work to get dependent libraries compiling cleanly
on 64-bit Windows. You might want to help that project out. Go to
rubyinstaller.org and read up on it.

As for a 64-bit FXRuby extension, you’ll have to ask its maintainers.

64bits Ruby 1.8.x is not possible under Windows. Only on POSIX (LP64)
