Hi all,

Ruby 1.8.1 (hand built, not the installer)
Windows 2000

I was just playing with win32-mmap.  I tried running the test_server.rb and 
test_client.rb.  I started the server, which seems to be fine, but when I 
run the client I get this:

C:\eclipse\workspace\win32-mmap-0.1.0\test>ruby test_client.rb
C:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/ftools.rb:23:in `initialize': Permission denied - 
win32/mmap.so (Errno::EACCES)
        from C:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/ftools.rb:23:in `open'
        from C:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/ftools.rb:23:in `syscopy'
        from C:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/ftools.rb:43:in `copy'
        from test_client.rb:10

I have admin privileges.  Am I doing something wrong?
