I was previously working on a Linux box for my Ruby on Rails application (almost a year old project) that runs on Rails 2.3.2, Rails 1.8.7 and RubyGems 1.3.2.
Everything was fine until I shifted to Windows lately and I need to look and reprogram the application on windows. As far as I know InstantRails run on 2.0 (by default) and lately updating the gems shows error. So thanks to Mr. Google for helping me out on this, here is what I did:
So what I did was to download the rubygems (*.gem) file directly, I pick up the one closest to my version event though there are some latest version. My reason was there are some gems that works depending on the ruby version that you have.
