Development Tools Installing a Ruby Development Environment Installing a Ruby Development Environment Installing Ruby on Windows

bundle exec rails server results in the next error:

DL is deprecated, please use Fiddle Could not find gem 'tzinfo-data <>= 0> x86-mingw32' in the gems available on this machine. Run 'bundle install' to install missing gems.

Me and my brother both use a windows machine. We both tried to run bundle install and after doing this, it didnt solve the problem. We are using ruby 2.1.5 version, could it have something to do with this? If so are we better of using version 1.9.3?

Thank you.

Made the mistake of not installing the sass gem before installing sass-rails. Went off on a googleing tangent.

Gr...funny enough, I moved on to other tutorials because I got stuck on the debugger gem. Sounds like you were able to install everything ok though :)

I encountered quite a few problems installing all those gems(took me a few hours to solve them). Eventually i got it all to work. I found reading the message errors quite helpful in combination with googleing the problems. Let me know if you need any help, im happy to assist you. :)

ps: i see you already got 11,997 points and you started this year, very impressive! I started in december with Rails Development and i havent finished it yet, almost done with Ruby Foundations....which wasnt easy. Did not know anything about programming before Treehouse. I love it tho.

Thanks! I was a medical receptionist for a bit and it just wasn't for me at all. So I quit and am basically starting over with a lot of time to do it :) I'm going for front-end so the programming part doesn't really come naturally. Let me know if you ran into an error with the native extension. That's where I'm at now. Best of luck! :)

I studied law and work several years as a legal counselor...same as you it just wasnt my thing. Took me a while to figure out what I wanted, now I know for sure I want to get into tech. Figuring out where to start at the moment. Software engineering appeals to me, so im learning coding at the moment. You too best of luck! let me know how it is all going! :)
