welcome to the club of people who don’t get any
responses to their posts on this list ;-(
– and goodbye, since I’ll try to share the
little I know with you.
I’ve tried to use rubyscript2exe myself, with
mixed success so far (but that’s not Erik Venstra’s
fault), but I always
got past this tracing phase within which you
got kicked out.
Rubyscript2exe executes the ruby script in the
tracing phase and it seems that the program
can’t get through it.
Does the underlying ruby script as such work,
if you start it from ruby directly ?
Do you use any external libraries, gems, other
software that you communicate with via pipes etc?
Did you put everything you need into a
What OS do you use ?
Maybe you try an easy script (print hello-world/
ask for a name and repeat it) first.
In my experience, I always got a binary that
will work from rubyscript2exe, (on the computer
it was created on), but of course had the
downsides of all binaries - create it on a 64-bit
machine, it won’t work on a 32-bit machine,
or it asks for some C library which you only
have an older version of on another computer.
Maybe trying it on some Linux Live distribution
might also be an alternative.
Over two years, I wrote several emails to Erik
at his email address indicated in the help file
and got a response that got me further as well…
I’d join you to say that I’d also appreciate
more responses to questions related to Rubyscript2exe
from users of this list, even if they cannot solve all problems
