Problem in installing Rails :(


#1

Hi All,
I am trying to install Rails on Windows XP Home edition.
I have downloaded RubyGems 0.8.11 .
And when i open command prompt and goto c:\ruby\bin and type
gem install rails --include-dependencies
i get the following error message.

Local gem file not found: rails*.gem
Attempting remote installation of ‘rails’
Updating Gem source index for: http://gems.rubyforge.
ERROR: While executing gem … (Errno::E10022)
An invalid argument was supplied. - connect(2)

What is the problem? Please enlighten me? Any help or comments will be
highly appreciated.
Thanks again.
