I was running through a tutorial and now I can't start my dev server

I’m new so I just can’t figure out what’s going on here. I was going
through a tutorial to learn the ins and outs of Rails and then it just
stopped working.

I’m running RubyMine on Windows for now. Here are the errors:
[rake --tasks] rake aborted!
Could not find a JavaScript runtime. See


for a list of available runtimes.

I tried “gem install execjs” and “therubyracer”. No change. I tried
reinstalling Ruby, then Rails. No change. I tried adding them to my
Gemfile and bundle install but it fails at “therubyracer” What could I
have possibly done? Is it really as fragile as it seems or did I just
make a terrible mistake?

sounds as if you had the server running in one terminal and you were
updating in another terminal. If you install things such as gems, the
server needs to be restarted, even if you are in development mode.

I had the same problem I am using Rails 4.2.3 and ruby 2.1.2. I found
that therubyracer gem install install “V8” The version of V8 (googles
javascript) was not compatible with my gcc version 4.2. I had to use an
older gem (0.11.0)
to get it to bundle properly.
