I have Windows 7.   I am trying to get the gem installed for MySQL
Server 5.5
So, I get the zip file for gem from Brian Mario°«s repository on github
mysql2, extract it in the new mysql2-0.3.12b5 folder and start the
procedure as follows.  As seen below, I get the error °»file 'lib'not
found°… at the end.  I tried many times, got the same problem.  Has
anyone have a solution to this?
