That is the point I do not yet fully understand. At the moment I am
using the default Apache for Windows Version 2.2.17 compiled with
Microsoft Visual Studio (normal msi-Installer). But my Ruby and
mod_ruby for Windows where both compiled using MinGW-gcc-3.4.5.

I tried that. Does not make a difference. I tried both MinGW-gcc-4.5
and MinGW-gcc3.4.5

Can you try to follow my steps I listed here and tell me if the Module
loads for you at startup?. Actually you can download the
compiled with MinGW from below link:
