Error installing cucumber: - ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension

Hello All,

I am installing cucumber on my windows XP machine by using the command
“gem install cucumber -v 0.10.0”

But gets the following error :

Temporarily enhancing PATH to include DevKit…
Building native extensions. This could take a while…
ERROR: Error installing cucumber:

nmake
‘nmake’ is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable
program or batch file.

Gem files will remain installed in

inspection. Results logged to
C:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/json-1.5.1/ext/json/ext/generat
or/gem_make.out

Could you please me in resolving the issue.

I installed ruby 1.8.6, Ruby gems 1.3.7 and also dev kit
(DevKit-3.4.5-20100819-1535-sfx).
