I’d probably recommend the one click installer of version 1.8.6, just to
get you started. If you really want to go down the hard path then you
could download and install the one click installer then “replace” the
ruby.exe within it with the 1.8.7 version–i’ve never tried it but it
might work.
If you’d like to compile it yourself I’d suggest re posting your
question to the rubyinstaller mailing list.
Cheers!
