I found following test failures with VC 2012 64bit compiler on Windows 8.

[ 436/9569] PPTestModule::PPCycleTest#test_anonymous = 0.00 s
  1) Failure:

The above error is related with the address range of Object allocation on Windows 8.
The address is exceeded fixnum(32bit) range. 
But object_id is fixnum and pp module is based on object_id.
Thus, pp module cannot restore the original address of the Object.

C:\WINDOWS\system32>irb
irb(main):001:0> a = Object.new
=> #<Object:0x00001457366bc0>
irb(main):002:0> a.object_id
=> 731592160
irb(main):003:0> require 'pp'
=> true
irb(main):004:0> PP.pp(a,'')
=> "#<Object:0x00000057366bc0>\n"
