Thin start fails with error Message Missing Rails 2.3.8 gem"

Hi,

I have been working on rails 2.3.8 and today update to Rails 3.0.
I could not start thin server using

$)thin start

on my earlier projects which have been configured to use Rails 2.3.8

Following is the error message

"Missing the Rails 2.3.8 gem. Please `gem install -v=2.3.8 rails`,
update your RAILS_GEM_VERSION setting in config/environment.rb for the
Rails version you do ha
ve installed, or comment out RAILS_GEM_VERSION to use the latest version
installed."

I have already the following definition in config/environment.rb.

Please let me know if this is a known issue or it there is workaround?
Can I not run Rails 3.0 and Rails 2.3.8 on my windows machine?

As I am using Windows I think I may not be able to use RVM.

Narendra,

did you figure out what cause thin to error?

I am running into a very very similar issue, where i get the same error
but i am not sure how to tell thin about rails. i do have rails gem
installed and i am also trying to run thin in Windows (server 2008).

Regards
