Hello, I'm using instantrails 2 to develop RubyOnRails projects on
windows and need to update my ruby version to 1.8.7 (I'm still using
1.8.6). I downloaded ruby 1.8.7 here http://ftp.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/1.8/ruby-1.8.7.zip
and unzipped files in the ruby folder of instantrails but when I check
"ruby -v" I still got 1.8.6 (I tried a gem update and same thing, some
gems won't update because they detect ruby 1.8.6 and not 1.8.7).

Any idea what I'm doing wrong??

    You should check railsinstaller ... or even better try to change to a linux
    distribution :)

    The files you download are the source code, you'll have to compile it to have it available as a binary on your machine. Not sure how that squares with InstantRails, though. You might want to look at RailsInstaller from Engine Yard, which I gather is the latest thing for Windows + Rails. Someone else with experience using Posix software on Windows can probably point out my errors and what you should do.

    Hello Javier and Walter,

    First thanks for your reply. I already had a look at RailsInstaller
    but I would prefer not to change my development environment, just
    update ruby to 1.8.7...I'm gonna keep looking for a solution about
    that.

    Olivier.

    You can take a look at Pik gem, it works very similar to RVM with the
    difference that this works on windows =D

    Here's the URL: http://rubygems.org/gems/pik

    I have done exactly what you describe and it did work. Did the files
    from the zip end up in the ruby/bin and ruby/lib folders? As this is
    Windows you probably should reboot if you havn't.

    Reviewing I think I find I did something different. I downloaded
    binaries from
    http://ftp.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/binaries/mswin32/ruby-1.8.7-p330-i386-mswin32.zip
    and they worked fine. As someone said what you have downloaded is the
    source and you really do not need that.

    I have done exactly what you describe and it did work.   Did the files
    from the zip end up in the ruby/bin and ruby/lib folders?  As this is
    Windows you probably should reboot if you havn't.
    Reviewing I think I find I did something different.  I downloaded
    binaries fromhttp://ftp.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/binaries/mswin32/ruby-1.8.7-p330-i3...
    and they worked fine.  As someone said what you have downloaded is  the
    source and you really do not need that.
    Thank you all for the help, I used the binaries files you said
    (actually Walter was right from the beginning...) and it worked great!
