How to install rails gems 2.3.5 on windows

Hi,

When I try to add generator to controller, I got error as "Missing the
Rails 2.3.5 gem. Please `gem install -v=2.3.5 rails`, update your
RAILS_GEM_VERSION setting in config/environment.rb for the Rails version
you do have installed, or comment out RAILS_GEM_VERSION to use the
latest version installed."

Can somebody please let me know how to install rails gem 2.3.5
successfully on a window machine

Thanks in advance for your help

What error do you get when you run "gem install rails" from the
command line?

Hi,

I am getting below error

ERROR: http://gems.rubyonrails.org/ does not appear to be a repository
ERROR: could not find gem rails locally or in a repository

Have you tried running the following in a command line window?

gem update --system

Bob

It should work. It worked for me.
try gem install rails -v=2.3.5
instead of
gem install rails --v=2.3.5

just to clarify...you ran "gem update --system" by itself and not as
an option on your "gem install rails" command correct?

Also, try adding http://rubygems.org/ to your gem sources by running
the following command...

gem sources -a http://rubygems.org/

After that is run, try updating system again with...

gem update --system

and then try installing rails again with...

gem install rails -v 2.3.5

Hope this helps,
Bob
