Hi,
I'm trying to install this version from here (on windows 10 machine):
Download Archives (rubyinstaller.org)
but I'm redirected to a site which states - "forbidden"

I Need to use this specific version for my  Legacy development environment.
Is there any other way to get the 1.8.7 p374 installer for windows ?

Hello,

The provider of hosting of the downloads shutdown their service, the archives of past releases needs to be migrated to GitHub, that counts for ~50 releases with more than 2.5GB, which takes time to upload and map correctly to each version.

You can see more details here:


Only recent versions were addressed, older version will take longer.

Hopefully can do that next weekend. Hope you can understand.

Cheers,
Luis

I have a few downloaded versions over time...
* ruby186-27_rc2.exe
* ruby186-26.exe
* rubyinstaller-1.8.7-p358.exe
* rubyinstaller-1.9.3-p194.exe
* rubyinstaller-1.9.3-p551.exe
* rubyinstaller-2.0.0-p648.exe
* rubyinstaller-devkit-2.6.6-1-x64.exe

There could be a couple of other ones some place, if it helps...

Best Regards,
Mohit.

Thank you Mohit,

I've a full backup of all the files from Bintray, but will take a bit to get those uploaded.

Thank you for your offer, and will let you know if we encounter any issue.

Hello folks,

Thankfully Lars scripted the upload and made all the releases available, as detailed here:


You should be able to grab the updated URLs for the downloads from the archive page:
