Ruby Build a Todo List Application with Rails 4 Build a Todo List Application with Rails 4 Generate a Rails Application

Just starting rails, yea! I finally got all the stuff downloaded (whew!) I got the rails server up once, but...

I don't even know where to begin to troubleshoot this.

C:\Users\smolderingflax\Desktop\Projects\odot>bin/rails server
'bin' is not recognized as an internal or external comma

Hi there! The bin is referring to a folder containing binary files. In Linux the paths are written with a slash / while in Windows paths are written with a backslash . My recommendation? Try this:

bin\rails server

I'm not 100% sure this is the correct answer, so I'm not leaving it as an answer :smiley:

Thanks Jennifer, I'll try that.

That did not fix the problem HOWEVER, knowing that linux uses / and windows uses \ seems like an important piece of info. Thank you.
