In case this helps, RMagick have just released another windows version
(i think that last one was broken hence going back to the previous) -
http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=12

just battled with that install…and got it done.

  • first check if you do ne have a failed install in your gem
    check the ruby\gems\1.8\gems folder and if you see a rmagick-xxx
    folder delete it
  • then updatde your gem:
    gem update --system
  • then that should work
    I have gem 0.9.4 ruby 1.8.6 and installed rmagick-1.14.1-win32.gem
    from the rmagick-win32-1.13.0_IM-6.2.9-3 package
