Running autotest on Windows XP?

Helo, Is it possible to make autotest (from Zentest gem) run on RoR
under Windows XP?
When I’m trying to do it, it throws an error message:
"couldn’t find HOME environment – expanding ‘~/.autotest’ "

On Cygwing it runs OK. But I don’t want to use Cygwin as it is much
slower than Windows.

Cheers, michau

Autotest looks for a .autotest file in the path defined by the HOME
environment variable. You don’t necessarily have to have a .autotest
file, but you will need to set the HOME environment variable. I use
%userprofile%.

See this for details on managing env variables in windows.

Just wanted to point out for all the future Googlers what it says in
Gordon’s MS link: make sure if you’re using a console manager such as
Console 2 that you restart it otherwise the HOME environment value
update may not be applied.
