Installing Ruby On Rails On Window

I ran into some issues when I tried to install Ruby On Rails on Windows. These are the steps I used to finally get Ruby On Rails running on a Window box.

To start you need to download the Windows Ruby installer from Here. I used the 1.8.6-26.exe Final Release. I ran into some issues when tried to install Rails using the default 0.9.4 RubyGems version that comes with Ruby.

I had to update RubyGems to 1.3.5 from Here. I used the install bits. After downloading and extracting you can run the setup.rb file to update. Type “gem -v” in a command window to verify RubyGems installed correctly. A successful install will show 1.3.5. Once RubyGems is updated you can run “gem install rails” with out errors.

Now it’s time to build something amazing with Ruby On Rails!

I began programming in C++ when I was in college. Odd for a business major, but hey I am a Dork. After college I got a job as System Administrator. As a System Administrator I was in charge of web administration. My journey as a PHP web developer had begun. Since that time I have gained an in depth knowledge of CSS, Javascript, XML and MySQL. With changes and advances to technology I have also began learning AJAX. I started Blue Fire Development to do freelance work in my spare time.
