*** POSSIBLE ISSUE with Ruby 1-click Installer for Windows 1

I wanted to move from Ruby 1.8.2 to Ruby 1.8.4 on this windows machine.

After reading the 1-click installer FAQ, I decided to uninstall 1.8.2
and install 1.8.4.

Unfortunately, after the install I noticed the path for my system
variables became only c:\ruby\bin (all other entries seemed to have
disappeared)

I can’t be 100% sure it was this installer… Could someone else
confirm?

Thanks!

There is a bug
(http://rubyforge.org/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=5017&group_id=167&atid=715)
open on this.

The comments indicate it may be related to a PATH that is longer than
1024 characters.
Seems the installer (NSIS) has a default limit for strings set to 1024.

cheers
