D:\test\rails\my_app>ruby script/plugin install

=> D:\test\rails\my_app\vendor\plugins\quick_scopes

quick_scopes directory is empty!!

Why ?
Git client is not installed...

Try this - I'm not kidding.

Install CygWin from http://www.cygwin.com/setup.exe

The installer lists Gitorious as one of its packages. Grab that.

Learn Bash, from any Linux tutorial

Open a Bash shell (a "dollar prompt", like $).

Run cmd /c start . to figure out where you actually are

cd to where you need to be (but outside your rails project.

Run git clone git://bla/bla/blah.git

That will give you the clone, and a system to instantly install all the
tools we
use around here, and it will teach you a little Bash, which in my
exalted
opinion is more user friendly than Windows.

Uh... how do you expect it to work without a Git client?

Try this in another folder:

   git clone git://github.com/internuity/quick_scopes.git

If you git nothing, install a git client. If you git something, move it
into the
vendor/plugins folder.
