I've been trying for a week to get my first Rails app developed using
migrations. I failed on the command:
My last resort has been to faithfully follow Rails Cookbook's first
example. I stumbled a few times but finally implemented the
Cookbook's example up to the "rake db:migrate" command, where I got:
lib/rake.rb:2242: private method `task' called for Rake:Module
from K:/_Utilities/ruby186-26_rc2/ruby/bin/rake:19:in `load'
Eventually, it dawned on me to try "rake" with no arguments, with "-
h", with "-v" and always got the same 6 lines of output.
"gem list -r rake" reported that 0.8.1 is rake's current version.
ruby 1.8.6 (2007-09-24 patchlevel 111) [i386-mswin32]
rake-0.8.1 (apparently: I can't get "rake -v" to work, of course)
A gentile push over this hump, even a blunt knock in the head, would
be greatly appreciated. I apologize for the several threads I've
started on this topic.
