RedCloth binary gem for Windows asks for msvcrt-ruby18.dll

Reported by riddermark | January 20th, 2010 @ 03:26 AM


I have downloaded the RedCloth-4.2.2-x86-mswin32-60 binary gem. Calling "require 'redcloth'" in irb results in a message from ruby.exe saying "This application has failed to start because msvcrt-ruby18.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

I am running ruby 1.9.1p376 and the library should be msvcrt-ruby1.9.1.dll. Is there a binary gem of RedCloth build against ruby1.9.1 or do I have to rebuild the native extension by myself?

Thank you.

    Great. Let me quote the message that appears after the could-not-load-dll dialog:

    RedCloth uses native extensions. It's extremely fast but must be compiled.

    Right now I'm perfectly fine with something that's a little bit slower but WORKING.
    I'd like to compile it myself(I've gone through the trouble in compiling a native extension in VS2008 before) but I don't know what 'echoe' is. Not even if it's a library or an executable. Gread.
