Ok, I got those.

and unpackaged it to the appropriate directory.

What does that mean? You ran the Ruby installer to create a directory
tree on windows, then copied “â—¦Ruby/Tk environment” to the “appropriate
directory” (whatever that is) then gave a copy of the whole resultant
directory tree to me? What is the “appropriate directory”? If you use
explicit paths it would be a lot easier for me to understand.

I unzipped a .7z file from rubyinstaller,
then followed the instructions on
http://www.dumbo.ai.kyutech.ac.jp/~nagai/RubyTk/?Ruby/Tk-Kit

specifically “Ruby/Tk environment (please extract at RubyInstaller’s
lib/ruby/1.9.1) :
rubytk-simple-w-img_ext-20100523-for-RubyInstaller191.zip”

That’s it? Just copy one folder into another and start using? Now that
wasn’t so hard was it? What about compiling and rake and all that?

Please avoid the sarcasm, we all are trying to help you.

The developer of Ruby/Tk provided binaries to drop inside the
RubyInstaller’s folder structure, thank him.

Also, he released the tk-win gem, which just wrap things more easily.

All the other instructions applied to compile from source, which is a
more complicated task.
