http://conceptspace.wikidot.com/forum/t-154517/rai... On windwos, we could not find a way to execute `gem --version` on windows. The weird thing is this is happening while we are able call 'gem --version' on DOS directly. Of course there is no problem on Linux.

Have you tried invoking gem as `gem.bat --version` in IRB? There's a special case in the config.gem installation code for win32, so I'd guess that that might solve your problem... --Matt J. On May 19, 6:32 am, Umur O. <firstname.lastname@example.org>

Basically, in IRB, we could not call any "gem installed" commands in Windows. e.g. gem, rails, rake The mystery is as they are available in Shell, why they do result in error called from IRB? So far 4 other people complained me of the same thing. I am inclined to conclude that nobody uses IRB on Windows :)

Could you provide more details on how gem "gets an error"? I just tried it (including installing gems from IRB) and it worked fine. This isn't the first heisenbug that I've seen with Ruby and Windows... (for instance, see http://groups.google.com/group/rubyonrails-talk/br... ) Thanks, --Matt J.

I discovered the problem after running a rails template on Windows. After seeing the problem I opened IRB and failed to call rails, rake and gem from there. Tried on a few other windows machines to fail the same way. The error is "Invalid Exacutable Format" You can try the template: rails your_app -m http://tinyurl.com/cs-active-scaffold Which is from the rails tutorial http://conceptspace.wikidot.com/rails101:introduction PS. I am an Ubuntu user. I am just trying to know how to keep cross- platform

If you successfully run rails your_app -m http://tinyurl.com/cs-active-scaffold on your windows then I would say that everybody I've met has a wrong installation!

Now I understand. Yep, that's a known issue with templates: https://rails.lighthouseapp.com/projects/8994-ruby... --Matt J.

I added warnings to http://conceptspace.wikidot.com/ and debugged the template to be free of commands almost. Finally I could achieve a running Windows version I guess.
