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 rubygems-1.3.5.zip 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!
