I downloaded and installed the Ruby for Windows kit, but I can't figure
out how to open it now.  When I go to my Start menu there is some
programs, (interactive Ruby, Ruby server) but all they do is open up a
command prompt.

Where is the IDE to help me start developing application GUIs in Ruby?

You only need an editor with syntax highlighting, e.g. Notepad++.

If you're just starting with Ruby, and it sounds like you are, I'd
recommend following some tutorials and reading a Ruby introduction book
before you start creating GUIs.

If you want to get started learning GUIs straight away, I think that's
what Ruby Shoes was made for: http://shoesrb.com/

My personal preference when constructing GUIs is Ruby GTK.

Sorry, I overlooked the GUI part...

If you're willing to pay for a good IDE I recommend you RubyMine. To
start developing software with GUI take a look at this different options
=> https://www.ruby-toolbox.com/categories/GUI_Frameworks . I recommend
you FXRuby. There's a book that will teach you how to work with it, it's
around the web since it's no more printed, it's called something like
"Developing Lean and Mean User Interfaces with FXRuby".

So is it FXRuby or RubyMine?

I installed Ruby 2.0.0  (on Windows 7) with the 1-click installer and
that went fine.

I followed directions on the DevKit and added K:/Ruby (tried K:\Ruby
also) which wasn't located to config.yml.

When I run 'ruby dk.rb install', I get an error:

     Invalid configuration or no Rubies listed. Please fix 'config.yml'
and rerun 'ruby dk.rb install'

Any thoughts as to what I am doing wring?

What does your config.yml look like?
What is your Ruby installation's full path?

To answer that, Ruby mind is an IDE, or integrated development
environment,  that runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux. FXRuby is a graphics
library that is usable on those same platforms.

I like RubyMine, and usually switch back and forth between it and vim,
depending on my development environment at that moment. Good to know
both,
so as to be capable of working in minimalist and stocked situations.

Config.yml:
--------------------
# This configuration file contains the absolute path locations of all
# installed Rubies to be enhanced to work with the DevKit. This config
# file is generated by the 'ruby dk.rb init' step and may be modified
# before running the 'ruby dk.rb install' step. To include any installed
# Rubies that were not automagically discovered, simply add a line below
# the triple hyphens with the absolute path to the Ruby root directory.
#
# Example:
#
# ---
# - C:/ruby19trunk
# - C:/ruby192dev
#
---
K:/Ruby

--------------------

Path to Ruby: K:\Ruby.

Try replacing
K:/Ruby
with
 - K:/Ruby

Joel,

I dug that out of the Ruby installer group and it fixed the problem.

Now to follow the instructions to test it.
