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

Could Not Connect to localhost:3000

After running through everything in Installing Ruby on Windows I can't connect to localhost:3000. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Quick Update: -I ran the 'bundle exec rails server'. -I got the first 4-5 lines (=> Booting ... to => Ctrl-C to shutdown server) -Then it states "Exiting" with a whole bunch of info that follows

Don't know if that extra info helps. Thanks in advanced.

Here's all that extra info.

I found another user on here had similar issues. Will need to use 1.9.... instead of 2.0.

ETA: 2.0 doesn't work with Windows 8 for some reason.

I've tried again and still am getting the same response. Any help greatly appreciated!
