I have reported the following to [email protected]

Has anyone experienced anything similar or am I on my own on this one?

All advice appreciated

Thanks

Nobuyoshi N. suggests the following problem is due to a rake bug.
Currently I am unable to install hpricot on a win 64 system. See
following
bug report with response from Nobuyoshi N.

Original Bug Report:

Looks like latest version of hpricot is not pathing correctly for
installation
on win 64 systems which have both a C:\Program
Files and C:Program Files (86) directory. On the other hand correct path
seems
to be followed to write the
gem_make.out file.

gem install hpricot
Building native extensions. This could take a while
ERROR: Error installing hpricot
ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.

C:/Program Files (x86)/ruby/bin/ruby.exe extconf.rb install hpricot
‘C:/Program’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

Gen files will remain installed in C:/Program Files

I wrote “for 1.9”.
Rake isn’t bundled with 1.8 and the gem is not my responsibiilty,
so you have to report the issue to the Rake project.

I am still getting same error. Have tried gem update rake.
This is not fixed for me - I am currently without hpricot.
Maybe I have missed something??

Seems like an issue of rake.
Fixed in the repository for 1.9.
