I am trying to compile ruby from source code. And i am using thin server. Problem is when i am trying to start thin with ssl option by specifying :-

ruby bin/thin --ssl -a -p 44466 start

I starts the server, but on accessing the https://localhost:44466. It crashes ruby and gives the error on console and a popup comes saying ruby interpretor has stopped working.

"This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information."

and in windows even logs i see :--

Faulting application name: ruby.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x5154804d
Faulting module name: MSVCR90.dll, version: 9.0.30729.4940, time stamp: 0x4ca2ef57
