Topic: ruby-odbc gem not installing on windows 2008 server 64 bit


I am trying to install the ruby-odbc gem on windows 2008 server Enterprise SP2  64 bit  version
I have installed the devkit for ruby and it is also getting installed.
When trying to install this ruby-odbc gem some how make.exe file is getting crashing and I am unable to install it further.

I am able to install the same gem on a 32 bit machine but the same procedure does not work out on 64 environment.

Following are the details of ruby and gem version

ruby 1.8.7 (2011-12-28 patchlevel 357) [i386-mingw32]

gem version is 1.3.7

Kindly suggest and help me in resolving this issue as this server is based on production environment and it is very critical

Quick help is very much appreciated.
