Can’t you just do

gem install

with the full filename?

RMagick-1.14.1_IM-6.3.0-7-Q8.zip is a zip file that contains both the
rmagick-win32 gem and the Windows installer for ImageMagick. Download
the zip file and unzip it into a temporary directory. Use the chdir
command to make the temporary directory your current directory. Run the
ImageMagick-6.3.0-7-Q8-windows-dll.exe command to install ImageMagick.
Then run

gem install rmagick --local

That’s it.

All this information is in the README.html file that is included in the
.zip file.

yes, really thank you. i was confused, because when i explicitely
(–install-dir) type directory, it failed (why?), so i didnt come up on
such trivial solution.
