[Ironruby-core] [ANN] IronRuby 0.9.2 Released

I'm not convinced this is a "spaces in the name" issue. I think it is more
likely a privileges/UAC issue. Vista and Win7 are very paranoid about
allowing anyone except the trusted installer to write files to the Program
Files directory.

If you explicitly run the command prompt as administrator, does the issue
still occur?
