Rails Installation on Windows.doc (42 KB)

Somashekar,

I think the messages that you are seeing are warnings from RDoc, not errors. If your console output is similar to https://gist.github.com/harshalbhakta/7349705, Rails should have been installed on your system even if you see those warning messages. What do you get when you try to execute “rails -v” in your command prompt?

RDoc had issues that caused it to parse binary files. This was fixed in the below commit.

https://github.com/rdoc/rdoc/commit/ceb81dd11911fb8a1f7342f5710f6afdd2036fc7

Below are a few reference issues if you want to read more about the warning messages.

https://github.com/rdoc/rdoc/issues/195

Dear Harshal,

If we go to command prompt and check the version of Rails its showing Rails.4.0.

then we start rails service using command : rails server, its giving the error

Regards,

Somashekar.R

Somashekar,

Can you post your entire console output for “rails server” command?

Dear Harshal,

Somashekar,

“rails server” command is used to start the server for a Rails project. Looking at your output it seems that you are executing this command from a folder that does not contain a Rails project.

I suggest you follow the getting started guide located @ http://guides.rubyonrails.org/getting_started.html

Below are a few steps you should follow to create a new Rails project.

  1. Create a new Rails project. http://guides.rubyonrails.org/getting_started.html#creating-the-blog-application

$ rails new blog

Executing this command will create a folder named “blog” with all files required for a new Rails project. Replace “blog” with the name of your project.

  1. Goto the folder “blog” from your command prompt and execute “rails server”

This command should start your application on port 3000. http://localhost:3000 will let you check you project homepage.

RailsGuides link I mentioned above walks you through each step required to get you started with your first Rails project.

Harshal

Dear Harshal

I given the command like this:

  1. c:>rails new blog

  2. cd blog

3)rails server it gives error

  1. bundle update

5)rails server it gives error

I attached erros screen shot for yours referanse please go throw on this and give the sugation to install rails, I am waiting for yours sugation.
