Ferret Gem Installation on Windows

Hello PJ,
Thanks for your response. I was trying to avoid installing it as a
gem and was attempting to install it as a plug-in. I guess both are
OK?
Regards,
Bharat

Hi jayarajan,

I got the same problem.
If I download the win 32 gem, But I got same error again.

Please give me the solution.

Perhaps there's a bug in the latest version (0.11.6) I guess.
It works fine with "gem install ferret --version 0.11.5"

Thanks Justin, I got ferret to install on Windows XP by using version
0.11.5. I was having the same trouble as the first poster initially.

Can someone please tell me why oh why gem doesn't just list the
different available versions and let you choose one?

Hi Jayarajan,

I installed ferret gem "version 0.11.5". It installed fine.
I think ferret will work now for me.

Thanks for your suggestion.

Thanks

I had the same problem and solved it exactly in the same way. However,
yesterday I looked at http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=1028 and
there were some changes in downloads, so you can actually grab 0.11.6
version for mswin and install it successfully - it works for me at
least. :slight_smile:

"gem install ferret" didn't work for me (working with 0.11.6-rc7), but
"gem install ferret --version 0.11.5" did run without the nmake error.

"gem update ferret" throws the nmake error again :frowning:
