any hints/suggestions for my problem of installing the 1.2.2 binary on  
windows? I have downloaded the 1.2.2 gem


but it seems to be incomplete .. if I tray to do a

gem install fxruby-1.2.2-mswin32.gem it complains not finding the fox12  
library in the ext directory (see my previous email) .. I've tried to  
manually open the gem file (renamed it as a tar file and open it with  
winzip) .. it contains two other archives, one called metadata and the  
other data ..

in the data archive it appear to be the fox installation, it contains  
directories for doc, examples, lib, rdo-sources, tests and web, but no ext  
directory and no fox12.so anywhere .. in fact the gem file seems also much  
smaller than the 1.2.1 one ..

Probably I'm doing something wrong .. any help will be really appreciated,  
since I'm stuck on this problem

Thanks a lot, Riccardo

I'm using gem 0.8.1 ..
