    Hi,

    I am currently trying to install watir on my PC but currently hitting the errors below and I cannot think why this is happening?

    I am following the steps below to install:

    Download ruby 1.9.2:
    http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/downloads/
    Install.

    Download RubyGems:
    http://rubygems.org/pages/download
    Install.

    Download the DevKit so that native extensions can be built:
    ruby dk.rb init
    ruby dk.rb review
    ruby dk.rb install

    gem update --system (or to do more quickly: gem update --system --no-rdoc --no-ri)
    gem install watir

    Whaend I do this all I get is the error log below. Does anyone know how I can get Watir to install please? ANY HELP GREATFULLY RECEIVED!!!!

    I am totally at a loss as to how to rectify this. I have tried this on both XP x86 and Win 7 X64 to no avail.

    Thanks in advance (y)
