rails new testapp

When i try to install the testapp, the command prompt tells me that the DL is deprecated and to use Fiddle. Did anyone run into this problem or know how to fix it?

The "Dl is deprecated, please use Fiddle" message is only a warning. It's typical for ruby 2.0.0 on windows. It won't harm anything but can be a bit annoying. Here's a couple of good links on it: https://teamtreehouse.com/forum/dl-is-deprecated-please-use-fiddle http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15590450/ruby-2-0-0p0-irb-error-dl-is-deprecated-please-use-fiddle
