It may have troubles, but it could be worth looking into.

About libmysql.dll, you can download MySQL Windows Version and copy
the libmysql.dll to C:\Windows\System32
And, I think you can download InstantRails to learn how to develop
rails application on Windows if you are a newbie.
Good luck.

i thought Rails 2 use SQLite as the default database engine? how come
it is looking for LibMySQL.dll? thanks.

if i follow the instructions on:

http://agilo.us/2009/03/15/rails-on-windows/

the command

gem install sqlite3-ruby

If I recall you have to ask for version 1.2.3 of the gem (because
there is no windows build for 1.2.4)

great, thanks, this works... although the Javascript popup still says
about libmysql.dll is missing. how come it is looking for mysql stuff?
i thought sqlite is the default?

C:\rails\third>gem install -v=1.2.3 sqlite3-ruby

not sure... but since i used

gem install rails

just a few days ago, should it be using sqlite? and how can it be
changed? thanks.

The important thing is what you specified when you generated the
application, or what you have since set it to use. those settings live
in your_app/config/database.yml

when generating the app, i just use

rails fourth

so is it default to sqlite if i am using the most recent rails? thanks.

Probably -- but don't waste time guessing. Rather, look at the
database.yml file. That will let you know exactly what the app expects!

Best,

hm, thanks. everything inside that file says sqlite... so i wonder why
the javascript pop up says libmysql.dll

SpringFlowers,

I used InstantRails and it worked quite smoothly, but was very slow.
I'm switching to Ubuntu over Sun xVM VirtualBox. You should definitely
give it a try!
