Foundation 5 with Compass on Windows

I'm trying to use Foundation 5 with Compass on Windows.
Had no problems with Foundation 4.3
Here's the steps I have taken.

I already have Ruby & Compass installed.

1. Install Git for Windows
http://git-scm.com/download/win

2. Install Node for Windows
http://nodejs.org/

3. Node.js command prompt
npm install -g bower

4. Node.js command prompt
cd C:\Programmi\Ruby193\lib\ruby\gems\1.9.1\gems
bower install foundation

So far so good. I now have what looks like a good Foundation 5 installation and the following folders (and contents) are on my machine:
C:\Programmi\Ruby193\lib\ruby\gems\1.9.1\gems\bower_components\foundation
C:\Programmi\Ruby193\lib\ruby\gems\1.9.1\gems\bower_components\jquery
C:\Programmi\Ruby193\lib\ruby\gems\1.9.1\gems\bower_components\modernizr

Now what ? I tried:

5. Ruby command prompt
cd c:\your\project\folder\
compass create -r foundation --using foundation

... but i get ...

LoadError on line ["36"] of C: cannot load such file -- foundation
Run with --trace to see the full backtrace

Anyone got any ideas ? Thanks !
