Cant seem to access /statuses/ on Ruby on Rails

Hi guys,

I've never done anything like Ruby on Rails of back end programming which is why I'm doing it! I'm a bit stuck though.

I've done everything Jason has done in his video:


But I seem to be getting an error when trying to access localhost:3000/statuses/ .. I'm pretty stumped. I've included a screen shot!


Edit, here's a screenshot of the command prompt too:


Thanks, Vaughan

Hey Vaughan!

I've notified the Teaching Team that you need some help, but I believe you're at a point in the Project where you'll learn how to fix that error in the next set of videos :D Watch a few more and see if that helps!

Don't hesitate to email us at help@teamtreehouse.com if you have any questions!

Hey Vaughan,

Also, try downloading and installing NodeJS on Windows. That may get rid of the ExecJS error - http://nodejs.org/download/.

Thank you Elizabeth and thank you very much Jason, that worked perfectly. I can continue now!
