Response to: Error create entire directory structure

C:\ruby\bin (assuming the default instal location) isn't on your system path. The installer should have added it to the path, but I've seen this failure before.


Right click on "My Computer" and choose Properties, then on the Advance tab click on "Environment Variables". Check the system path and make sure c:\ruby\bin is there. If not, then add it. In either case, its safest to reboot next because sometimes it won't show up in the console window until after a reboot (altough most of the time it will).

    Thanks Curth!!!

    I solved this problem as your help. I set path as:

    " c:\ruby\bin;%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tools\BINN;%ANT_HOME%\bin;%CATALINA_HOME%\bin;%JAVA_HOME%\bin"

    But I met a same error (" 'rails' is recognized as an internal or external command,operable program or batch file").

      Look in your ...ruby\bin directory. There should be a "rails.cmd" file there. If there isn't, then something went wrong with your installation of rails and I would uninstall, then reinstall rails:

      gem uninstall rails

      gem install rails

        In my ...ruby\bin directory lack "rails.cmd". And then I tried with "gem uninstall rails" and "gem install rails" printed as:

        >C:\>gem uninstall rails
        >C:\>"c:\ruby\bin\ruby.exe" "c:\ruby\bin\gem" uninstall rails
        >Attempting to uninstall gem 'rails'

        I only saw rails with version 1.1.0 differnce from rails version 0.9.4 as instructions in the website.I also reboot my computer. Then I moved "C:\rails". I typed "rails cookbook".Then I met same error as I said.And my ...ruby\bin directory aslo lack "rails.cmd". I don't know reason why.

        I also tried how to do as this website instructed as "gem install rails --remote" and then failed.

        Are there difference 1.1.0 and 0.9.4? If so,can you give me file download rails version 0.9.4?
        My address is ng_hong_duc@yahoo.com and also enjoy to know you.

        I'm a new comer with Ruby On Rails need some help from you and everybody.

        Thanks so much.

          You're not getting Rails installed at all, its installing something called "rails_analyzer" instead. This is an issue with RubyGems (the Ruby package manager).

          I'm not sure why this is happening to you and not to me, but I'm sure there is a way to force it to install the latest version of Rails (which is now 0.13.1 rather than 0.9.4).

          Unfortunately I'm enroute to San Diego for the Ruby Conference so I can't be of much help at the moment. I'll post another response in the next day or so when I have a better answer for you.

            The fix for me was to install rails via the following (where 0.14.2 is the current version)

            gem install Rails -b -v 0.14.2

            Hope this helps.

            The RubyGems peopl tell me this means that you have a very old very of RubyGems. You should be using the latest version of the One-Click Ruby Installer which is 182-15.
