I downloaded InstantRails 1.3a, and unzipped it to c:\InstantRails I then ran gem install rails --include-dependencies in the Ruby Console Window A lot of it worked, but I saw these errors (with a bit of surrounding output) Installing RDoc documentation for activerecord-1.15.3... Installing RDoc documentation for actionpack-1.13.3... lib/action_controller/routing.rb:1061:30: ':' not followed by identified or oper ator lib/action_controller/routing.rb:1065:39: ':' not followed by identified or oper ator Installing RDoc documentation for actionmailer-1.3.3... I'm working from the book "Build your own Ruby on Rails Application", and hoping that these were benign errors ( ;-) ) I continued and ran rails shovell That appeared to run OK, but then I tried to test the blank application and got this C:\InstantRails\rails_apps\shovell>ruby script/server ./script/../config/boot.rb:29: undefined method `gem' for main:Object (NoMethodE rror) from script/server:2 Can someone point me in the right direction to fix these problems, and get a little bit further into this. Thanks.

Thanks for the response. I was trying to use 1.3a, because that is the version used in the book I am reading, and I'd like the text to match what I see - at least while I am learning (in particular I understand there has been some change in breakpoint client behavior) I'm going to see if I can install the latest version of instant rails in parallel, and see if that has the same or different errors on my machine.

I did an installation of 1.7, and everything appears to run OK. So it appears that 1.3a will no longer create a usable environment. On to the next problem!
