Subject: How to get postgres driver installed in Windows


Hi everyone, I’m trying to get the postgres driver working in metasploit
(r3297) installed in Windows 7 64 bits.  When ever I try to install it
returns the following error:


[*] exec: gem install postgres


Building native extensions.  This could take a while...

ERROR:  Error installing postgres:

        ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.


/usr/bin/ruby.exe extconf.rb install postgres



Gem files will remain installed in
/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/gems/postgres- for inspection.

Results logged to

Updating class cache with 625 classes...


I already have postgres up and running, just waiting for the connection from


I have like 0 experience with Ruby (I’m no programmer) and I depend on my
Windows 7 for everyday work (don’t have any other machine available).  I’ll
will be trying this in a Ubuntu VM later, but I really need it working on
Windows 7.


If any of you have any previous experience with this or know a URL where I
can point my browser to, I’d be very thankful.
