if you are only using Instant Rails you have to run the
Instant Rails ‘use_ruby.cmd’ to set the path before you run
RadRails. Otherwise as far as I know none of the RadRails
integrated Rake menus or the Generator panel will work. This
is another setup that I thought about covering in a future screencast.
I think the easiest solution to this is to just put ruby in your path.
In my case I just add c:\InstantRails-1.3a\ruby\bin to my path and
RadRails and the generators all work as expected. It would be a quick
thing to do at the beginning of the screencast.
to use “dir” and friends when I’m on Windows.
The easiest way is to execute the following:
This will add mysql as a service in your Services control panel
configured to start automatically by default.
You may also need to add c:\InstantRails-1.3a\mysql\bin to your path for
this to startup as expected. I have not rebooted yet to test it but
this should get you going.
