Running autotest on Windows XP?

Helo, Is it possible to make autotest (from Zentest gem) run on RoR under Windows XP? When I'm trying to do it, it throws an error message: "couldn't find HOME environment -- expanding '~/.autotest' "

On Cygwing it runs OK. But I don't want to use Cygwin as it is much slower than Windows.

Cheers, michau

Autotest looks for a .autotest file in the path defined by the HOME environment variable. You don't necessarily have to have a .autotest file, but you will need to set the HOME environment variable. I use %userprofile%.

See this for details on managing env variables in windows.

hope it helps,
