    I unzipped a .7z file from rubyinstaller,
    then followed the instructions on
    http://www.dumbo.ai.kyutech.ac.jp/~nagai/RubyTk/?Ruby/Tk-Kit

    specifically "Ruby/Tk environment (please extract at RubyInstaller's
    lib/ruby/1.9.1) :
    rubytk-simple-w-img_ext-20100523-for-RubyInstaller191.zip"


    That's it? Just copy one folder into another and start using? Now that
    wasn't so hard was it? What about compiling and rake and all that?

    Please avoid the sarcasm, we all are trying to help you.

    The developer of Ruby/Tk provided binaries to drop inside the
    RubyInstaller's folder structure, thank him.

    Also, he released the tk-win gem, which just wrap things more easily.

    All the other instructions applied to compile from source, which is a
    more complicated task.
