Topic: Newbie help.

I need help getting into console. I could have sworn I did everything
right, but on 3 different computers I get the exact same error.

C:\rails_apps\test>ruby script/console
Loading development environment.
c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:27:in
`gem_original_re
quire': no such file to load -- ./script/../config/../config/environment
(LoadEr
ror)
        from
c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:27:in `re
quire'
        from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/irb/init.rb:252:in `load_modules'
        from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/irb/init.rb:250:in `each'

        from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/irb.rb:54:in `start'
        from c:/ruby/bin/irb.bat:20


I have ruby 1.8.5 installed on 2 of them and 1.8.6 on the third. I have
rails 1.2.3 installed on the 2 that have ruby 1.8.5 and rails 1.2.2 and
1.2.3 installed on the third one.

Here are the steps I took to get to this point.

1. downloaded and installed ruby with Windows 1 click installer
2. C:\>gem install rails --include-dependencies
3. C:\>rails test
4. C:\>cd test
5. C:\test>ruby script/console
6. watch the error and cry myself to sleep.

Help would be awesome. thanks

Re: Newbie help.

Hi Jeremy,

have you considered using InstantRails?  It's a great program for newbies.  It just extracts into a directory (no installation) and everything just works.

Re: Newbie help.

Actually I have taken a look at it, but to be honest I'm not really a newbie. I have been working with rails for a year now. I noticed when ever I post something that says "newbie" or "new to rails" I get quicker responses smile

I think I might just try it out though to see if I get different results, thanks.
