Unable to install sqlite3


#1

I am new to Ruby. Try out a web application, but when I tried to access
the page, it has the following error (see ERROR 1 below).

So I thought I may have not installed “sqlite3” and tried downloading
“sqlite_3-6-4.zip” and “sqlitedll_3-6-4.zip”, unzipped it and place it
in ruby’s bin directory. Then I run the command:

gem install sqlite3-ruby

But found myself encounter the another error shown below (see ERROR 2).

Any help would by wonderful
