Compass Module can't call gem commands

Hi all,

I have the compass module installed with SS3 on my WAMP local machine. I now receive this error:

[User Error] Compass Error:Ruby is present, but there was a problem accessing the \ current rubygems version - is rubygems available? The "gem" \ command needs to be in the webserver's path.

The gem command works fine in the command line and in Cygwin (works more like a Linux terminal) from the web-root of the site. For some reason though the Compass module has a problem using the gem command.

I've copied the gems folder from C:\Ruby193\lib\ruby to the silverstripe-cache folder of the site and set

define('SS_GEM_PATH', 'silverstripe-cache/gems');
in mysite/_config.php.

Any ideas on what could be going wrong here? Have I copied the right gems folder?
