No timezone data source Error on server initialization
I was simply following the installation instructions with the video and my testapp server appears to be crashing instantly giving an error of: "c:/users(blah blah)/Ruby200-x64/lib/ruby/gems/2.0.0/gems/tzinfo-1.1.0/lib/tzinfo/data_source.rb:199: in 'resuce in create_default_data_source': No timezone data source could be found. To resolve this, either install TZInfo::Data (e.g. by running 'gem install tzinfo-data') or specify a zoneinfo directory using 'TZInfo::DataSource.set(:zoneinfo, zoneinfo_path)'. (TZInfo::DataSourceNotFound)"
It then shows a large number of directory paths that I am supposing incidentally fail. I went ahead and tried running "gem install tzinfo-data" and then I tried the "bundle exec rails server" again and received the same error message. Any suggestions as this is a deeply nested connectivity issue that I wouldn't begin to know how to root out. Thanks in advance.

The same problem happened on my machine when I started with Ruby on Rails. I was able to resolve it following the steps from this post: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/23022258/tzinfodatasourcenotfound-error-starting-rails-v4-1-0-server-on-windows
