Connect to IBM_DB with rubyscript2exe

I have a ruby script that can connect to an IBM_DB database and gather
all the necessary information for my script to run, but once i use
rubyscript2exe to create a .exe of the script it keeps saying that my
database connection is false and wont connect.

any ideas as to what the problem is?

First off, I highly recommend switching to OCRA
(http://rubygems.org/gems/ocra) over rubyscript2exe, as rubyscript2exe
has been discontinued for almost 3 years. That alone may fix your
issue.

If it doesn’t, could you provide more information, like the exact text
of the error message and a small script that reproduces the problem?

I have tried to install OCRA but keep getting a ton of errors.

so i would like to be able to use what i had. below is a script that
works when i run it as a .rb but when i make it a .exe through
rubyscript2exe it no longer will connect to the DB. the DBname is
cataloged if that makes any difference

require ‘mswin32/ibm_db’

sql = “select * from statement where row = ‘1’”
dbh = IBM_DB::connect(databaseName, “”, “”)
sth = IBM_DB::exec(dbh, sql)
holdA = IBM_DB::fetch_array(sth)

puts holdA[0]
