Hi there,

While I try to install Cucumber in IronRuby 1.1.1, and I got this error:

ERROR:While executing gem... (TypeError)
    can't convert NilClass into String

Looks like it is a null class exception. But I could not locate the
error just base on the error message.

Anyone have this problem before? Any help would be appreciated

Thanks in advance

Hi Leo,

There seems to be a general problem with the new igem installer.  I
been able to figure it out, but there's a fair bit of discussion on a
previous thread (without resolution).  I am looking forward to this

Most gems I have tried to install since upgrading give me this same
error message.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the quick reply.

Too bad there is not solution for this problem. I might install IronRuby
1.1 and see if it works.
