I got the following strange error while installing on Windows XP with command prompt chcp 932.
invalid byte sequence in Windows-31J

With chcp 437, install succeeded.
With chcp 932, 3.0.2 install succeeded.

When using ruby 1.9.3 with chcp 932, 3.0.3 install succeeded.

>ruby -v
ruby 1.9.2p290 (2011-07-09) [i386-mingw32]

C:\>gem -v

Sorry, don't know how I would debug this. The gem itself looks fine. Must be a problem of that specific environment. I don't even know what chcp is!
