Gem native extension installer failure on winxp pro 64 system

Here is the shell error:
C:\ ..........> gem update
Updating installed gems
Updating fxruby
Successfulyy installed fxruby-1.6.16-x86-mswin32-60
Updating haml
Successfully installed haml-2.0.2
Updating hpricot
Building Native extensions. This could take a while...
ERROR: While executing gem.... (Gem::Installer::ExyensionBuildError)
ERROR: failed to build gem native extension

Path was given to gem.make.out file which reads:

C:/Program Files (x86)/ruby/bin/ruby.exe extconf.rb update
'C:/Program' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

At first glance it seems the update script does not specify path correctly
specified for platform.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Looks like with hpricot the latest version doesn't come with a
pre-compiled binary. So avoid that, or install VC6 or mingw + mingw
ruby. Maybe :slight_smile:

Update RubyGems (and, probably, everything else) to handle paths with spaces.

VC6 is installed. This seems to be a pathing error in the install script which
is looking for C:\program rather than C:\program files (86) which is the
appropriate path on win 64. All other gems install fine- this problem only
occurs with hpricot.

Looks like it might be an hpricot bug then. Either hack out a fix or
post a bug or both, I guess.
