First I would like to thank you all for making AppVeyor and specially for allowing free usage of it for open-source projects!

I'm trying to setup a canary project to allow me test some gems against different versions of Ruby.

You can find here the appveyor.hml file that I've created:

For this, it depends on Bundler gem to be installed to install it's dependencies, but seems only 1.9.3 have it installed, as you can see from the build failures for 2.0.0 and 2.0.0-x64:

I can workaround this by doing gem install bundler as part of the installation step, however, looking at a separate thread:

Seems this might hang from time to time.

It is possible you can pre-install Bundler in all the installed versions of Ruby?

Thank you in advance for your time and making AppVeyor!

    Hi Luis,

    It's been some issue with Ruby gems that is fixed now.

    You can safely proceed with gem install bundler. It take seconds to install:

    Thank you Feodor!

    I've adjusted appveyor.yml to install Bundler on each version and is building properly now:

    PS: Saw in the other thread that you guys are working on adding the same mechanism to change version as Node. Please let me know if you need help or changes to RubyInstaller to make that easier (I'm one of the maintainers).

    Thank you again!
