I posted some additional information on a topic that appeared to be the same as mine. It included additional information but also ended in a question, since I had not found a complete answer to the issue in my search.
The deleted answer was part of this question: How can I install zipruby under windows Please advise on this.
Also it would be nice if there was a clear place that directed newer users to the Meta Stack Overflow to answer questions like this. I was unaware of this protocol and didn't find anything in the FAQ that seemed to indicate I had posted improperly.
