    Windows XP Local Installation

    Hi guys.

    Trying to install rails on XP. Only problem is that our firewall seems to be blocking remote installation of rails. Now I know you can specify a local installation, so I've downloaded the latest rails from rubyforge, but I can't get gem install rails --local to find it.

    Anyone know where the rails folder needs to be located so it can be found?

    Cheers

    See if the tips on this page will help you out. Find the heading that says "Running gem install when you are behind a proxy".

    Download the complete .gem file from ruby forge and get all the dependent files as well. then you can install them with:

    gem install rails.13.1.gem (or whatever the gem is named)

    The important thing to remember is that you need to be inthe same directory as the downloaded gem or give the full path to the gem file with the .gem extention.

    Thanks for that vgarcia.

    For future reference adding an HTTP_PROXY environment variable did the trick.

    Now to get started.....
