Has anyone successfully installed Ruby/Ruby on Rails plug-in modules in NetBeans? I have downloaded and installed the following file by unzipping it in the NetBeans folder. netbeans-6_0-daily-bin-200703041900-4_Mar_2007_1900.zip I start it by launching NetBeans.exe file. The NetBeans IDE starts fine. Then I went to the Update Center and chose the Ruby and Ruby on Rail plug-ins and installed them. When I start a new project (I am careful in not choosing a project name with spaces or "-" in them). I am following the basic demo on the NetBeans site and naming my project "BlogDemo" off C:\demo directory, I am getting Java exceptions regardless of if I choose ruby project or a rails project. The NetBeans environment hangs. This does not happen if I choose a Java project of any kind. If anyone can post a simple set of steps to install ruby support in NetBeans with downloaded file names etc., I will appreciate it. It seems like my ruby plug-ins are not installing properly? Thanks.

I think that I am actually going in reverse here!! I removed NetBeans completely. Installed the Q-Build based on a recommendation on the site and am trying to connect to the Update Center using Update Manager. I get time out and cannot connect to the internet from within NetBeans. The machine is on the Internet. It is asking me for Proxy Configuration. Clicking on Proxy settings opens up a General dialog which displays the following options: No proxy Use System Proxy Manual Proxy Settings It does not matter which one I select and I don't know the Manual Proxy Settings. I am behind a Comcast firewall and behind a router. How do I determine which Proxy settings to use? Thanks. Bharat

Problem solved. On my other laptop which is not connected to corporate VPN, and therefore is not behind a proxy server, NetBeans installed fine. I could use the Update Center to download ruby and ruby on rails modules and things seem to be working fine. Another difference between two laptops is that this one is running JDK 1.4.2 whereas the one behind the proxy server is running jdk 1.6. But that should not be a problem, I will test and then report.
