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'
    >Remove executables and scripts for
    'rails_stat, bench, crawl' in addition to the gem? [Yn] y
    >Removing rails_stat
    >Removing bench
    >Removing crawl
    >Successfully uninstalled rails_analyzer_tools version 1.1.0

    >C:\>gem install rails
    >C:\>"c:\ruby\bin\ruby.exe" "c:\ruby\bin\gem" install rails
    >Attempting local installation of 'rails'
    >Local gem file not found: rails*.gem
    >Attempting remote installation of 'rails'
    >Successfully installed rails_analyzer_tools, version 1.1.0
    >Installing RDoc documentation for rails_analyzer_tools-1.1.0...

    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.
