Default "One-Click Installer (old)"


Trying to follow the recommended (pp.12-18) installation of the One-Click Ruby Installer at http://rubyforge.org/projects/rubyinstaller. However, that page lists the item as "One-Click Installer (old)" and dated November 19, 2008, suggesting that since this book was written, one of the other options, "RubyInstaller" dated July 15, 2011 is the new way to go.

Before I go through a ton of trial and error, does anyone have an update on the best way to go here which will still be compatible with the book?

Hi Dave,

the book was written when the new installer wasn't available yet. So the maximum compatibility would be achieved by using that old installer. Alternatively, you could try a new installer, sticking to the 1.8 version: http://rubyforge.org/frs/download.ph...1.8.7-p352.exe

Thanks for the reply, Antonio. Thanks also for a book that's doing a great job (so far, in the first 2 chapters), of providing the justification for RoR, esp. in contrast with the Microsoft stack. This is one of the main areas I'm trying to tackle.

In any case, I'll have to make a choice about whether to try the new RubyInstaller or use the older one for max compatibility.

Thanks again!
