Windows Rails new testapp issue in the cmd window.

I installed Rails using the cmd window, began to run a testapp and it stalled on a prompt. After a minute, it continued to run until completion. Following along with the Treehouse video, I typed in the command "bundle exec rails server" and received the same prompt. The prompt is as follows...

So I assume you did 'rails new testapp' and that this created a folder for your new application with all the proper file structure inside. Try simply going there and typing 'rails server', without the bundle exec part. Also, in Windows you should use cmder or git bash (you can download cmder from http://bliker.github.io/cmder/ and git bash is already installed with git, it should be somewhere in your Program Files (x86)/Git/). This would give you access to unix commands, which are used throughout the videos.

That fixed the issue! Looks like there was a Firewall that wasn't allowing the program access to run certain extensions. Thanks Maciej!
