About wxRuby

Hi All!

I am beginner to Ruby and much interested to learn wxRuby, but still
not able to find some useful tutorial for this topic. I have installed
wxRuby but not able to run its a single exmaple yet. I will be thankful,
if some one guide me on Ruby Wx as I have to develop a final thesis in
wxRuby.

Bye

The best place to start is probably with the samples included with
wxRuby. These can be found in your ‘gems’ directory. A good one to look
at is the “minimal” sample.

If you are having problems running the samples, please post any error
message you are getting, and tell us what platform you are running on
(Windows, OS X, Linux).

Hi Alex!

Many thanks for your reply.

I am using Windows XP and I am getting “msvcp71.dll missing”, although I
have installed the wxRuby using gem command from command line. I will be
thankful if you guide me step by step to run my first wxRuby example on
my windows XP plateform.

Thanks in Advance.

This is Microsoft’s C runtime library. I don’t think we’re permitted to
redistribute it to users, but if you search on google you will find
numerous free sites where you can download it.

Once you have downloaded it you should put the .dll file in
C:/Windows/system32/. If it requires any other .dll files (eg
mscvr71.dll) you should be able to do the same.

With that in place you should be all set to go.

It’s unusual these days that XP doesn’t have this .dll available
already. What “Service Pack” of XP do you have installed - do you have
SP2 installed?

Hi Alex!

Many thanks, using your advice, I download the file and put it in
system32 directory and the problem is solved.

Thanks again, its a nice support from this forum.
