Shipping gem on windows


#1

I am trying to use the shipping gem shipping.rubyforge.org, but I cant
get it to work on my windows development box at all. Problem anytime I
try to do anything I get:

ArgumentError: couldn’t find HOME environment – expanding
~/.shipping.yml' from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/shipping-1.3.0/lib/shipping/base.rb:25:inexpand_path’
from
c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/shipping-1.3.0/lib/shipping/base.rb:25:in
`initialize’
from (irb):4

It seems the gem is looking for the shipping.yml for loading presets,
however I don;t even plan to use this feature. I want to be able to
snag the ups/fedex account info from a global settings table in the
database. But I cant get them gem to work at all on my dev windows box.

Is the shipping gem just not windows compatible?

Noone else has done this?
