Are you on windows? On Linux it is very simple, you must install ruby. Perhaps it is already available. You need to give some more information, how did you install ruby? Btw, "ruby xy.rb" won't open it per se, it will execute/evaluate the content of that .rb file.

Oh you need ruby! I had notepad++ and thought it worked with that as well. Sorry I'm a newbie.. But thanks for the answer. Btw would you recommend installing Linux or should I keep windows till I know some more?

Maybe ruby is not in your PATH. Either update your path, or type the full path to ruby every time you invoke it. BTW, this question is actually unrelated to Ruby. It is the same for *every* program: Either you have it in your PATH, or you type the path.
