I’ve just downloaded Erik V.'s RubyScript2EXE, but it does not
seem to work correctly at all. Here’s what I’ve done:
I downloaded the latest rubyscript2exe.rb to my working folder, with
the .RB to be packaged (in this case, hello-world.rb).
I opened a command prompt, navigated to the working folder, and ran
the command “ruby rubyscript2exe.rb hello-world.rb”.
There is a very brief pause, and the line “Tracing hello-world …”
appears. Whatever process that seemed briefly to be running appears to
quit, and a glance at the Windows Task Manager shows no activity. I’m
left with just a blank line, as though the program is asking for input,
though nothing I type elicits a response except CTRL-C, at which point
the following is spit out:
Couldn’t execute this command (rc=256):
c:\ruby\bin\ruby -r ‘rubyscript2exe.rb’ -I
script.d.3712.1’ -I ‘c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8’ -I
uby/1.8/i386-msvcrt’ -I ‘c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby’ -I
I ‘c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/i386-mswin32’ -I ‘.’ -I ‘C:/Documents and
/My Documents/Rick’s/Ruby’ -I
I’ve found no similar problem to this anywhere online, so I’m tempted to
think I’ve made an egregious oversight somewhere.
Thank you very much!
