There are many options. Personally I use a combination of TCL/Tk and the OCRA gem in combination with Inno.

Well, you'll want to try out a few different tools and work out the best one for you, but here's something to get your started: GUI: http://www.tkdocs.com/tutorial/ EXE Builder: https://github.com/larsch/ocra Shiny-looking windows installer: http://www.jrsoftware.org/isinfo.php I should note that when combining OCRA with Tk, you need to do something a bit special with the build instruction. The trick is to add all the Tk directory explicitly. The command looks something like this: ocra "My Script.rbw" C:\Ruby193\lib\tcltk\ --no-autoload --add-all-core
