Ruby upgrade - Newbie question

Hallo,
I want to upgrade from 1.8.2 to 1.8.4 - Windows XP
The one-click installer does not allow me to install over the existing
version.
I am concerned about all the gems i have, do not want to reinstall them.
Do i proceed as follows?

  1. Install 1.8.4 to a new location.
  2. Prune my gems tree from old to new.
  3. Do a gem update.
    Is that the right approach? Or is it simpler?
    Thanks
    Rainer

I am with the same doubt. :frowning:

Reinstall them. If there are binary gems involved, you will not be
able to run the older binary gems with the 1.8.4 Ruby for Windows.

The Windows build situation is a bit of a mess right now, but
discussions have recently restarted with Microsoft on ways that this
can be resolved.
