gem update --system

I just installed the RMagick gem.

The instructions said do a "gem update --system" first so I did.

I rebooted afterwards.

Now I cant even run mongrel

This is on windows. the errors are:

Any advice appreciated

gem install --remote rake

or

re-install your mongrel, regarding this error message :

no such file to load -- .../InstantRails_1_7_Dev/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/
1.8/gems/mongrel_service-0.3.2-x86-mswin

Re-installing mongrel makes no difference.
I have re-installed mongrel and mongrel_service with no joy.

I restored my ruby folder from backup and everything is fine until I
do a gem update --system and then it all breaks again.

G.

if this is the case try reinstalling the rails first. after installing
the rails try the command ' gem update --system '
