I have Freeride 0.9.5. I if have a script like 'puts "hello"', save it, and then press F5, this is what the output window displays: >ruby C:/prog/ruby/test.rb >exit It doesn't show the output of my program, and there's no error message in the FreeRIDE seperate console window either. Think I had this problem with FreeRide 0.9.4 too, that's probably why I upgraded. I know that ruby is unix-centric, and that you're suppposed the use emacs and all that, but I'm spoilt by Python's wonderful IDLE interactive IDE. I just want it to work, so I can start checking out Ruby. I tried the Scite version that comes with ruby too, but that seems to have it's own set of problems... So I'm resorting to using a generic editor, the command line, and irb for now.

I am basically having the same problem. With the standalone version I get this behavior when I do a run. If I run in debug mode it works and the output goes to the command window. If I run the One-Click Install version the debugger does not work but the program runs correctly with the Run mode. I a trying a reinstall of everything to see if has any impact.
