Spicycode-rcov binaries for windows machine


#1

hi, I am (sadly) PC user and i would like to get spicycode-rcov working
for cucumber and selenium. I could not compile and install
spicycode-rcov since i dont have nmake.exe and cl.exe which is only part
of visula studio.

I tried installing Visual Studio 2008 and that spitted out the below
error.

“MSC version unmatch”

It looks like some version mismatch between compiler that was required
and the one that I tried with.

Could someone help me with this please???

issues, i can have them working in few days!! thanks for your answer.

Most Ruby binaries on Windows are still compiled with Visual Studio 6.0.

Why you don’t switch to MinGW based Ruby?

That is going to be the replacement for VC6 version:

Download 7zip packages, including the developer kit and follow the
instructions.

Then update rb-readline:

You can get rcov compiled just by gem install :slight_smile:

HTH,
