Need help installing sqlite3 on windows

Here is what I tried:

Downloaded sqlite3.dll and placed in c:\windows\system32 (I also tried
it in c:\ruby\bin).

C:>“c:\ruby\bin\ruby.exe” “c:\ruby\bin\gem” install -r sqlite3-ruby

It doesn’t seem to want to load.

I can get it to work through the ODBC driver, but it doesn’t seem like
the best way to use sqlite3.

It loaded. The return value of require doesn’t mean much. Try this:

irb(main):002:0> SQLite3
=> SQLite3

See, the class is there, you’re good to go.

Looking at the post I noticed the code should have the first two letters
uppercase.

irb(main):001:0> require ‘SQlite3’
=> true

Time to try it out.
Thanks
