Hi,

I am trying to install the code coverage for Ruby(rcov)… but it is
giving the following error message in commmand prompt.

Used Ruby Version
Ruby - 1.8.5

use the gem

gem install rcov

in the options select a win32 version

—> ext
—> ext/rcovrt
nmake
setup.rb:655:in `command’: system(“nmake”) failed (RuntimeError)

The error you are seeing is because you seem to not have nmake in your
path (or you do not have build tools installed), so calling nmake after
creating the Makefile fails.
