Windows 7 WAMP + Ruby on Rails Apache Errors

Hello all,

I'm new to ruby on rails, been dealign with LAMP my entire carrier and have decided to take the dive and learn ruby. To start this off I decided I wanted to install ruby on my Window 7 PC at home with WAMP and learn from there. So I followed this tutorial:

When it gets down into the part of loading the fastcgi module Apache won't start for me here. I'm baffled as running the SO or the DLL I get the same error in my system logs:

The Apache service named reported the following error:

httpd.exe: Syntax error on line 128 of C:/wamp/bin/apache/Apache2.2.17/conf/httpd.conf: Cannot load C:/wamp/bin/apache/Apache2.2.17/fastcgi/mod_fastcgi-2.4.6-AP22.dll into server: The Apache service named is not a valid Win32 application. .

Can anyone advise?

I'm window 7 64 bit. Running the Apache 2.2.17, Ruby 1.9.2, RubyGem 1.8.7

Is there any reason why you are trying to use wamp?

Don't use FastCGI module, the binaries referred in the tutorial are too old to properly work with newer Ruby and even worse with Ruby 1.9.2

If you're just doing development and don't plan to run this as production, you can avoid Apache from the equation and use "rails server" to run your Rails application.
