Ruby DevKit (1.8 & 1.9)

Ruby Development Kit (DevKit) is a toolkit that makes it easy to build and use native C/C++ extensions such as RDiscount and RedCloth for Ruby on Windows.

This no longer takes a dependency on Ruby. Please install that first.

To install Ruby DevKit (1.8 & 1.9), run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install ruby.devkit
