Please provide information of the Ruby version you're using ('gem env'
will be enough)

Appears that you're using the VC6 build of ruby (i386-mswin32) which
requires you have Visual C 6.0 installed (no longer available)

Please confirm this, and if so, then I would recommend usage of
RubyInstaller[1] packages with the DevKit[2] to get a stable Ruby
environment with compiler.
