InstantRails and ImageScience on Windows

Has anyone successfully used ImageScience whilst running using
InstantRails on Windows? Out of the box I don’t believe it’s
possible given that ImageScience uses RubyInline which itself requires
a C compiler, which of course Windows doesn’t ship with.

Unless I’m missing something obvious, does anyone have any suggestions
for how I can get this up and running, or is it a matter of installing
Cygwin and the Rails stack manually?

Cheers, Olly

Olly,

Just wondering, did you have any luck on figuring out how to do this?

Thanks,
lab

I’m afraid not. I think you can probably do it by installing a
command line C compiler but I haven’t tried this. The best solution
is to ditch the PC and buy a Mac :slight_smile:

Ok, I’ll try that.
lol. I thought about that at one point (getting a Mac) hehe. Thanks for
your help anyway :slight_smile:
