I've installed the latest VisualRuby on a win7 x64 machine.  Everything
seemed to install without errors.  Glade launches OK.  However, when
trying to launch vr from the command line I get the following error:

λ ruby -v
ruby 2.2.2p95 (2015-04-13 revision 50295) [x64-mingw32]

λ vr
line 38
   Gdk-CRITICAL **:_gdk_win32_display_create_window_impl: assertion
'display == gdk_display_get_default ()' failed

Does anyone have any ideas on what the problem may be?

Thanks in advance,

I tried installing it on my Windows 7 machine and It worked.  It may
have to do with your version of ruby.  I know that there were problems
with Windows and Ruby version 2.0, and I know that it works with 2.3.
So, I'm guessing that the problem was fixed in version 2.3.

I'd try installing ruby v2.3 and see if it fixes the problem.

I will check my exact version when I get home.
