Bluecloth v2.0.10 with windows 7 not working
WIth Ruby 187, I had downloaded devkit from http://rubyinstaller.org/downloads and followed the instruction per https://github.com/oneclick/rubyinstaller/wiki/Development-Kit. I had also ensured that devkit is installed properly by following smoke test.
I had then tried installing bluecloth (v2.0.10). It had failed with following error:

If you need 2.2.0 (the latest version), here's how I got it to work:
Run the command below to install bluecloth:
gem install bluecloth
this will fail miserably when building "native extensions", but will successfully install the gem's source code.
Patch bluecloth.h file (for me, this is found in: D:\ruby\Ruby-1.9.3-p125\lib\ruby\gems\1.9.1\gems\bluecloth-2.2.0\ext), with the patch from here: https://gist.github.com/1539611
Go to bluecloth's gem installation folder. For me, this looks like below:
Run the following command:
It may prompt you to install some other gems, follow accordingly. When it's done, you should see a bluecloth-2.2.0.gem created. For me, it is found here:
Go to bluecloth-2.2.0.gem location, and run the following command:
gem install bluecloth-2.2.0.gem --platform=ruby
It seems there is a bug/issue with version 2.0.10 of BlueCloth. You can try using an older version like 2.0.7:
gem install bluecloth -v 2.0.7
Which seems to work.
Also probably this worth checking latest version (2.2.0?) and if not work, report it back to gem author:
This is the patched bluecloth.h code, for people in a hurry...

There's a fork on github that already includes the patch:
