Issue #9289 has been updated by bob (bob barker).


You can't ;)  I can - what sort of trace would you need to tell exactly what its crapping out on (i.e. debugging the startup of the interpreter?);  Would building the files rather than using the installer and comparing (i.e. checking of the locally-compiled version) crashes help?  Sort of determining if the problem is in the source versus the distro (compilation params)?  I am at your service.

Bug #9289: Segmentation fault - RailsInstaller, RubyInstaller, Ruby.
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/9289#change-43902

Author: bob (bob barker)
Status: Feedback
Priority: Normal
Assignee: usa (Usaku NAKAMURA)
Category: platform/windows
Target version: 
ruby -v: 1.9.3p484
Backport: 1.9.3: UNKNOWN, 2.0.0: UNKNOWN, 2.1: UNKNOWN


Installed RailsInstaller; Ruby crashes it on post-install config (ssh/git).  Confirmed by running ruby with no params and crashes.
Downloaded various versions of Ruby from RubyInstaller project (as 7z's) - latest version to not crash on running ruby.exe was:
ruby-1.9.3-p286-i386-mingw32.7z

moves up past that in version number crash i.e. ruby-1.9.3-p327-i386-mingw32
oddly enough, can run ruby --version on all the later ones without it crashing
