Ruby 1.8.7 and1.9.1 installation problems

Hi all
I’m running on my machine vindows vista home and ajust can not install
ruby 1.8.7 or 1.9.1 on my machine.
I used window-installer for this ruby release but after installing i can
not install any gems like rails or wxruby . After tipping in cmd : gem
install rails,it sais gem is not a internal or external command.
What to do to make ruby to work??

Just guessing here: you may have to manually put the command’s location
in your PATH environment variable.

Kind regards

Did you use the installers from here?

http://rubyinstaller.org/

Did you check the option during installation to “Add Ruby executable
to PATH”?

I’m not aware of any Window-installer, you refer to RubyInstaller?
Please see my previous comment about the lack of checking the box
during installation.

Even if you don’t added to the path, you can start a personalized
command prompt from the application folder named “Command Prompt with
Ruby 1.8.7”

HTH,

I use Ubutu, but since I have been using windows before here are some
tips. Goto command prompt type:
ruby -v
if you get something like this:
ruby 1.8.7 (2010-01-10 patchlevel 249) [i486-linux]
You have installed Ruby successfully.

To install gem click this link:
http://rubyforge.org/frs/download.php/70697/rubygems-1.3.7.zip , once
you have downloaded it, extract it, navigate to the extracted directory
with your command prompt and type ruby setup.rb

I hope things will work fine.
