Exec format error installing Globalize on Windows

Hello,
Whan I am trying to do is I18N-related, but the problem seems to rather
be Rails and Windows, so I am posting it to this forum.
I must admit I am a complete noob in Rails. I need to develop an
application with support for several languages so I decided to install
Globalize for Rails 1.2 on a clean installation of Rails. I created a
project named “first” and typed the following:
D:\railsspace\first>ruby script/plugin install
http://svn.globalize-rails.org/svn/globalize/branches/for-1.2

After some operation the script complained about some “Exec format
error” (Rakefile?).
Whole output follows:
D:\railsspace\first>ruby script/plugin install
http://svn.globalize-rails.org/svn/globalize/branches/for-1.2

    Exec format error - rake -f
    D:/railsspace/first/vendor/plugins/for-1.2/…/…/…/Rakefile
    globalize:upgrade_schema_to_1_d
    ot_2 && exit 1

I checked the Rakefile and here is its contents (I did not edit it):

Add your own tasks in files placed in lib/tasks ending in .rake,

for example lib/tasks/capistrano.rake, and they will automatically be

available to Rake.

require(File.join(File.dirname(FILE), ‘config’, ‘boot’))

require ‘rake’
require ‘rake/testtask’
require ‘rake/rdoctask’

require ‘tasks/rails’

I am running on Win XP SP2. Here are the versions:
D:\railsspace\first>ruby --version
ruby 1.8.6 (2007-03-13 patchlevel 0) [i386-mswin32]

D:\railsspace\first>rails --version
Rails 1.2.3

Can anyone help? I have no idea how to bite this problem…

All the best,
Maciek
