Vagrant Boxes and Veewee

11PM Thursday Night

I’ve been trying to get Windows 2008 vagrant box up and running and I’ve had little luck. According to instructions on, the creation of a base windows box sould be a breeze using the veewee gem, but the script placed in the base of the cygwin install had several errors.

10AM Friday Morning

It looks like cygwin was sporting an older version.


  1. Edit the file to pull the latest cygwin files.
  2. Also, the ruby installer looks like it wants to pull the 32 bit install. Is that right?
