Cant install RMagick from gems

I tried install Rmagick from gems, but didn’t it.

ruby -v
ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [i386-mswin32]
gem -v
I have downloaded from

[c:\mytemp\RMagick-1.9.1-IM-6.2.3-win32]gem install RMagick-
Attempting local installation of ‘RMagick-win32-1.9.2-mswin32.gem’
Successfully installed RMagick-win32, version 1.9.2
[c:\mytemp\RMagick-1.9.1-IM-6.2.3-win32]ruby postinstall.rb
RMagick 1.9.2 win32 Post Installation (see enclosed README for
license information)
detecting available fonts, writing to config/type-windows.xml…ok.
setting MAGICK_CONFIGURE_PATH to ‘C:/ruby184/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/
setting is only for current user.
Copying 5 dlls to C:/ruby184/bin…done.
all done.

ruby test.rb

[c:\myruby]ruby rmagick.rb
./RMagick.rb:4: uninitialized constant Magick (NameError)
from C:/ruby184/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/
custom_require.rb:21:in `require’
from rmagick.rb:2

test.rb is

require ‘rubygems’
require ‘RMagick’

puts Magick::Long_version

I tried install progressbar using gems, the progressbar works well.
Why does’nt work RMagick ?
I need ImageMagick-6.2.4 dll ?

Can you repost this on the help forum in the RMagick project section on
rubyforge ? This is where Tim H. (the project’s author) and I (your
humble windows packager) will definitly try to get you up and running.


Thank you.
