FIX for wxruby-1.9.6 on Windows

Hi

If you’ve installed the latest wxRuby 1.9.6 on Windows and are having
trouble running applications, please try the following steps:

  1. Ensure that you have msvcr80.dll and msvcp80.dll available on your
    system. If you haven’t got them, they can be downloaded for free from
    http://www.dll-files.com/ and placed in your ruby/bin directory.

  2. Copy a file called
    ‘lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/wxruby-1.9.6-x86-mswin32-60/wxruby.so.manifest’
    to your ruby/bin directory, and there, rename it ‘ruby.exe.manifest’

On XP this will also ensure you get the nice XP-style widgets.

I’ll try and put out a release soon that automates these steps.

Double checked and proven to work.

Also, if you use rubyw.exe, you need to repeat step 2, only naming it
rubyw.exe.manifest instead of ruby.exe.manifest

correct path to ‘wxruby.so.manifest’ is:
‘lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/wxruby-1.9.6-x86-mswin32-60/lib/wxruby.so.manifest’
not:
‘lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/wxruby-1.9.6-x86-mswin32-60/wxruby.so.manifest’
