It's unclear to me exactly what problem you're trying to solve...

I'm not sure what you mean by that.  Do you mean that 'require
"watir"' returns true?  If so, that's not an error.

What unit tests?  What is the error/failure reported when you run
these unit tests?

This won't stop you from using the builder gem; at worst, you may be
missing some _documentation_ for the builder gem on your local
machine.

Which gem is failing to build it's native extension?  Once you figure
that out, googling for that gem's specific requirments will probably
tell you what you're missing.

Also, it'd be useful to know what operating system and the versions of
ruby and rubygems you're on.

cheers,

Thank you very much lasitha:
sorry i was not so clear
my windows version is vista, ruby version:1.8.6 ,  gems version: 1.3.2
The error is, after installing few files it says
>> ERROR: While generating documentaion builder - 2.1.2
>> MESSAGE : Unhandled special :Specoa;: type=17, test="<!--HI -->"
>> [...]

I ignored this actually in the intial stages.but later when i am trying
to type in
ie=Watir::IE.new  to intialize internet explorer for google search test
case, it was saying IE not found in the library. So i went to the gems
folder and opened each folder only to see that they dont have anyfiles
in it..I felt this error may be the reason that the irb is not
recognizing IE.It is giving the error
NameError:undefined local variable or method'watir' for main:Object from
<irb>:02

Later i went to the SCite and typed in the whole test case to open the
IE and search for pickaxe, it is not throwing out any errors and shows
Exit code:0 but it doesnt open Internet explorer or is doing nothing.


when i click
