Trying to build on windows - no luck. Here is my error message ( running on Ruby 1.9.2 p290 on windows 7 with devkit ).

PS D:\Projects\Web\\ajr> gem install looksee
Temporarily enhancing PATH to include DevKit...

Did anyone have any luck with this? Thank you


Same error with ruby 1.9.3p0 (2011-10-30) [i386-mingw32]


I'm experiencing the same issue. Has there been any progress on this?



Still seems to be an issue...


Same issue:
ruby 1.9.3p545 (2014-02-24) [i386-mingw32]
