Help Ruby with Vista

So I have used Ruby problem free on Windows XP however I am having
problems using Ruby with Windows Vista. When I double click on a script
that I have writen to run it the command prompt comes on and then
dissapers. I think my program is executing just fine only I can never
see it.
This same thing happens when I am using Scite, only with Scite I can
tell that the program has executed because of the Output side of Scite
shows me it is working. I just cant see it run in the command prompt.
Kind of frusterating, please help me. I never had a problem like this
with XP.

Thanks for your replies,
Bill

I’ll suggest you open a command prompt and have it all the time,
instead of rely on Scite or any other IDE console output.

I also suggest you use a more powerful console interface [1] instead
of simple Windows Command Prompt.

AFAIK, my installation of Windows XP with One-Click installer behave
the same way you described, but that is normal behavior since it’s
calling ruby.exe which is a console application.

Use rubyw.exe rather than ruby.exe

Thanks for your comments. Just wanted to thank you guys for your quick
responses and apologize for all of my spelling errors. I wrote this late
last night after getting off of a ten hour shift. I must have been
tired. Thanks again guys.
