I have been trying to run the 'Hello World!' gosu tutorial under Ruby. When Ruby processes the require 'gosu' line I get the following error:

The specified file could not be found 'C:/Ruby200/lib/ruby/gems/2.0.0/gems/gosu-0.7.48-x86-mingw32/lib/'

I assume that the install was ok since there were no complaints.

I have googled this without finding a solution or explanation. I’d really appreciate any ideas.

Besides, it doesn't even differ much from 1.9.3 (See:

See, Ruby 2.0 compatibility is not trivial on Windows :/
