Well, ignoring the fact that you are NOT building the interpreter,
and that you are referring to Ruby 1.8.5, what you do next is what
it says on the supporting website
which is -
1] To install Ruby, click on the downloads link below, choose the
version you would like, and click on the .exe link (under the name of
the version) to download the installer.
[You’ve done that already… ]
2] Use Windows Explorer to navigate to where you saved the .exe file and
double-click on it to run the installer.
[Ah - it is mis-named: it is really the Double-Click Installer!!]
Really - it is that simple. The installer is a Windows .exe - just run
it the way you would any other Windows program. You only do this once,
to install the interpreter, not every time you want to run a Ruby

The \lib\ folder is incomplete in the download of Ruby 1.8.5 therefor
need to resort to some simple hacks.
ruby source directory: F:\temp\ruby\r3\ruby-1.8.5
build directory: F:\temp\ruby\bi3
install directory: F:\temp\ruby\bi3
nmake DESTDIR=C:/usr/local install
copy version.h from Ruby 1.8.4
F:\temp\ruby\bi3\bin>nmake DESTDIR=F:\temp\ruby\bi3 install
Copy \lib\ folder from Ruby 1.8.4
