Rmagick tends to be tricky to install, but on windows its relatively simple, except for the fact that if you freshly installed ruby 1.8.6, ruby gems needs to be updated. If you install ruby 1.8.6 and then go to ruby.forge and download rmagick for windows. Extract the zip folder, run the .exe, then open a command line, cd (change directory) to the install folder and do â€œgem install rmagick â€”localâ€. The first time you do this, you might run into the â€œError installing gem RMagick (version) .gem[.gem]: buffer errorâ€. To fix that run â€œgem update â€”systemâ€ with double hyphens and then run â€œgem install rmagick â€”localâ€ and everything should now install fine.
