It seems the wamp installation of mysql doesn't contain the file "libmysql.dll".
I seem to need this file for ruby to work.... any ideas what to do...?
For anyone else that runs into this problem, WAMP doesn't include the file. For some reason they don't include it in the build.
You can however download the file from here..
..and then paste it into both the mysql and ruby 'bin' folders
I'm also starting to experience some other problems with it so my advice would be to try XAMPP
