DevKit for Native Gems

About My Project

It is a ruby gem for doing test automation on Windows.

Problem

Just getting started with using AppVeyor. I'm just playing around with my install script and it looks like this:

gem install bundler
bundle

My gemset uses some native gems, and I do not believe that the DevKit has been installed.

Output

Running Install scripts
gem install bundler
Successfully installed bundler-1.5.3

Please update your PATH to include build tools or download the DevKit

Make sure that `gem install nio4r -v '1.0.0'` succeeds before bundling.

    Hi Levi,

    I'm going to install DevKit for Ruby 1.9.3 to AppVeyor 2.0 build images.

    Let me know if you need anything else.

    Thanks!

    My specs would require an interactive desktop session. Would this be a possibility?

    This library uses Microsoft UI Automation for verification and I believe that is a requirement.

    I can start another thread if you'd like, as this is off-topic.

    Well, that's interesting - you should give it a try. At the moment Build Agent is running under "appveyor" account which I believe has interactive logon rights.

    Btw, DevKit has been installed on build VM images.

    Well, I followed the instructions here: https://github.com/oneclick/rubyinstaller/wiki/Development-Kit and when I do tests from #5 I get expected results. See attached screenshot from master build server.

    Maybe there is problem with that nio4r package? Please let me know what I'm missing.
