Thanks Luis. Perhaps it wasn't building. I had put nmake on the  
system, but I don't know if it had the needed compilers.

I had actually tried the release and had a different error.  
I'm not at the client site today, so I can't report what that was  

I'll just wait until the new version is ready. I'm running webrick as  
a service until then.
