Can't start script/console, but can start webrick

I have this app on other computers and it works fine. On my laptop I was
running instant rails, but have scrapped it.

My error is:

C:\data\0315_FitWitWeb>ruby script/console
Loading development environment (Rails 2.0.2)
C:/data/0315_FitWitWeb/config/environment.rb:11:in require': no such file to lo ad -- active_merchant (LoadError) from C:/data/0315_FitWitWeb/config/environment.rb:11 from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/irb/init.rb:252:inrequire’

from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/irb.rb:54:in `start’
from c:/ruby/bin/irb:13

my environment file is very simple:

Specifies gem version of Rails to use when vendor/rails is not present

RAILS_GEM_VERSION = ‘2.0.2’ unless defined? RAILS_GEM_VERSION

get activemerchant going

require ‘active_merchant’

I can start webrick fine and my application runs perfectly. Yes,
activemerchant is installed:

C:\data\0315_FitWitWeb>gem list --local

require ‘active_merchant’

Put that line further down (ie after the initializer block or in a
file in config/initializers_: you can’t be sure rubygems has been
loaded at that point. I’m guessing webrick requires ruby gems early on
its startup process (mongrel certainly doesn, then again it is a gem)
which saves your bacon when running script/server

Wow, that was a fast reply. Thanks. The perfect solution.
