Installing mongrel_cluster on Windows... Runtime error :'(

Here's what happens when I try to install mongrel_cluster:

Okay, yeah, so basically it's about having Visual C++ 6.0 (Standard
Edition works fine) with Service Pack 6 installed. Once that's done
(plus the obligatory reboot), extensions compile just fine! :slight_smile:

Yeah… the mongrel_cluster stuff doesn’t natively work with Windows.

However, if someone would be nice enough to compile it as a win32 gem (hint hint) that would be great.

Sure thing :slight_smile: How would I go about doing that, though?

I should note that I could not get the darn thing to work, though...
I'm at the point where I've screwed up the server so bad, we have to
reinstall Windows... Gonna try with VMware tomorrow to find the right
approach. I can compile the mongrel_cluster stuff for you then.

Cheers,

It’s most likely not gonna work on Windows. At least that was the last official response. But if you can get it compiled… let’s investigate it! I’m up for it.
