While I find valuable your work on building ruby with VC8, neither
One-Click Installer or the new one will be backed by this version of
the compiler or the environment around it.

Some of the errors you're indicating in previous email don't get
exposed using OCI (VC6) build with our without VC6 in the ENV/PATH.

I have installed Ruby in C: and D: drives, so I'll modify the tests to
use another letter and see why is not being picked by flexmock.

Thank you again,
