Getting Caught At "Installing ri documentation"

When I do '''gem install rails''' I get a bunch of errors and then get stopped at '''Installing ri documentation for rails-4.1.6''' Any ideas?

I actually figured it out, just had to run it as an administrator. As well, 64 bit works out just a bit different then the install video.

maybe try installing without documentation

gem install --no-rdoc --no-ri rails

what errors are you getting?
