Windows executables

How can I make my script run directly on the command line in windows
like ruby is?
ruby -w myscript.rb -o
myscript -o

If you’re using one of the latest one-click installers, this should
already work for you. Here are some things to check.

make sure the path to ruby.exe is in your path system environment

variable
C:>path
PATH=c:\ruby\ruby186\bin;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem

make sure .rb and .rbw are set in the pathext system environment

variable

if you need to change a system environment variable, make sure you

set it in the gui, and not with the set command. Otherwise the

changes won’t persist.

Here’s some info on how to do that:

C:>echo %pathext%
.COM;.EXE;.BAT;.CMD;.RB;.RBW;.VBS;.VBE;.JS;.JSE;.WSF;.WSH;.tcl;.PSC1

make sure the file associations are there.

C:>assoc .rb
.rb=rbFile

C:>ftype rbfile
rbfile=c:\ruby\ruby186\bin\ruby.exe “%0” %*
