I was having problems creating new projects, so I uninstalled ruby and
rebooted.  I then reinstalled ruby with gems from the Ruby-1.8.2-15
installer and then tried to create a new rails project with "rails
depot".

Now I get:

[c:\dev\ruby\rails]rails depot
      create
Invalid argument - *

all the time no matter what directory I'm in.

Any ideas?  I'm lost.

It turns out it was 4NT.  If I run "rails <project>" from the normal
cmd.exe, it works fine.  Go figure.  Too bad, as I really like 4NT.

Wild guess:  On unix :-

/usr/local/bin/rails:	executable /usr/local/bin/ruby script

Maybe 4NT is trying to execute rails "directly" rather than
passing it to ruby?  I don't kow anything about 4NT.

4NT is a cmd.exe replacement that includes a number of niceties.  If you
develop on NT, you should check it out, but as a replacement, there are
some inherent incompatibilities.  I use it so much I forget sometimes
it's not the default.

Thanks.
