Verify installation

Is there a way to verify the installation of Ruby
I have downloaded and installed “182-15 stable” and then installed the
watir gem (gem install watir) taken all the defualt dependencies.
I am having a problem with executing the require ‘watir’ statement so
I want to ensure my ruby install is good.

Thanks to all

When you use gems, you have to require RubyGems somehow anytime you want
to use something installed as a gem.

Try:

require “rubygems”
require “watir”

I did as suggested. See transcript below. Notice the return of “false”
after the require rubygems. I did a “update_rubygems” and it reports
that rubygems is already installed. Weird??

The false return value is typical for RubyGems and nothing to worry
about. I would suggest looking for help from Watir’s community.

Ok good to know. I have posted in the watir group but someone there
suggested verifying my ruby installation by running some canned unit
tests or something and that is why I came over to this group to find
out how to verify an installation. Once verified I will have reason to
isolate the discussion to watir :wink:

I’ll suggest you revisit the Watir dependencies.

based on the backtrace, it seems Watir is using latest windows-pr
version, dunno if was planned to run with it or any other specific
version.

I ran into similar problems for mongrel_service and win32-service
dependency. I suggest you look into that before.

You can ask anyone in the Watir list give you a list of gems and
versions related to win32utils project (both windows-pr and win32-
process gems)

Also, will be helpful know the version of Windows you’re using (XP or
Vista in 32 or 64bits versions).

Regards,

The Ruby source does come with tests, but I have no idea how they work
on Windows.
