Gem files will remain installed in c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/SystemTimer-1.1.1 for inspection.

Trying to install from github:

Finally got it:

However:

LoadError: no such file to load -- systemtimer
        from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:31:in `gem_original_require'

This seems to be because there is no systemtimer.rb present:

Copying system_timer_stub.rb to systemtimer.rb does work, but is obviously a hack.

@ghazel

I made a fork which fixes some of this:

https://github.com/ghazel/system-timer

It's possible to rake package and then install the resulting gem, and it works.
