Hi, First let me say that I’m a total newbie and I just installed ruby
After installing rails on my computer I am getting the following error
I try to create a new app. In the command prompt I type in “rails new
nameofapp” and it installs some things and then spits out the following
error message, “An error occurred while installing rake <10.4.2>, and
Bundler cannot continue. Make sure that 'gem install rake -v ‘10.4.2’
succeeds before bundling.”
I suggest starting by working right through a good tutorial such as railstutorial.org (which is free to use online).
As for your error, many here, including myself, would suggest that you
do not try to do rails development on Windows. Instead use a linux
variety such as Ubuntu, or a Mac. Some have had success on Windows,
but many more have not. You can either dual boot your machine with
ubuntu and Win or run ubuntu in a virtual machine in windows (using
virtual box or vmware for example). Then I use rvm to install ruby
