1.3.10 does not work on Ruby 2.2.1 for Windows #150
any update on this !! I have ruby 2.2.2 - rails 4.2.1 on windows 8.1x64 and this problem persist.
No update, unfortunately. You should use Ruby 2.1.x.
By the way,
I hope this situation will be improved before the advent of Rails 5.0, which is said to require Ruby 2.2.
@kbhatt2006 The workaround for now: download the devkit from the rubyinstaller website, build the sqlite3 recipe here https://github.com/oneclick/knapsack-recipes and then build the gem with the command

ruby 2.2.2 and rails 4.2.4, getting sqlite3 error:
Provided configuration options:
extconf failed, exit code 1
Gem files will remain installed in c:/row/Ruby22/lib/ruby/gems/2.2.0/gems/sqlite3-1.3.10 for inspection.
There's a really nice set of step-by-step guides that was created for the RailsGirls Events. It also has details on common pitfalls in the windows setup with railsinstaller that you will run into after installing the RailsInstaller Ruby. It's not your fault, this comes up on every single machine.
Getting Rails to run is not the easiest thing in the world, i'm afraid. But usually this work upfront pays off. Most people like the language ruby and the framework ruby on rails a lot, once they run it successfully.
One more suggestion if I may: If you have a user group in your area, I'd also contact them. The ruby community is usually very welcoming. And meeting people in person is always nice! Have fun!
This has been sorted out and build has improved thanks to @larskanis contribution.
I've announced the release to sqlite3-ruby group:
As mentioned in the release notes, it includes binaries for 2.1.x and 2.2.x versions of Ruby on Windows.
Please feel free to cross-link that posting to ruby-talk since I'm no longer subscribed to it. Also post to any other mailing list you believe is worth mentioning.
@larskanis once again thank you for your contribution and improvements on building this and other gems.
Please note that this release only included patches to solve the issues related to Ruby 2.2 and Windows, no other patch has been merged or applied.
off-topic: request and demands of support
If you use and/or depend on sqlite3-ruby daily or for your work, please step up and offer yourself or possible your company to sponsor work on this project as maintainer.
If you believe you're not qualified, think again, look at the commits and study them, will notice this is not rocket science, is just software.
Have a nice weekend.
