Segmentation fault with Win32 Service & API on 1.9.1

I’m on Windows 2003, testing a possible upgrade from 1.8.6 to 1.9.1.

I receive a segmentation fault error when simply requiring Win32/Service
(nothing else in the script), which faults in win32/api.so.

Code:

require ‘win32/service’

Result:

D:/Program

This looks like a basic Ruby issue, not a Rails issue. As such, you’ll
probably get better help on the main Ruby list.

You’re using a precompiled binary that was compiled for 1.8.x not
1.9.x. That’s why it’s failing. You’ll need to compile from source if
you want to use it with 1.9.x.
