[Rubygems-developers] SUPPORT: Unable to update to 0.9.0 rubygems from 0.8.11 on Windows XP Pro

All, 

I couldn't find a support list for rubygems so my apologies in advance for posting to the developers list.

I have gems 0.8.11 and I attempted gem update --system and got the  output below.

What do I need to do to make the update work?

Do I need to issue the command in the ruby home directory?

Should I just install rubygems 0.9 from scratch? Does that have any implications?

In fact, if I just do a "gem update" command, I get the same error (I believe that's because it's trying to install
the rubygem-update gem).

Thanks,
Wes
