Thanks for trying it.
Could you download
  * http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/binaries/win32/dependencies/fontconfig_2.8.0-2_win32.zip
  * http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/binaries/win32/dependencies/freetype_2.4.2-1_win32.zip
and extract them into
  #{GEM_HOME}/1.9.1/gems/cairo-1.8.3/vendor/local/
?

Here are correct places:
  #{GEM_HOME}/1.9.1/gems/cairo-1.8.3/vendor/local/bin/freetype6.dll
  #{GEM_HOME}/1.9.1/gems/cairo-1.8.3/vendor/local/bin/libfontconfig-1.dll

Then please try "require 'cairo'" again.

If the above instruction makes rcairo work on Windows, I
will update rcairo gem for Windows.


Thanks,
