Redmine installation on a virtual windows

Added by Didier Rombauts over 8 years ago

Hi,
I'm trying to install Redmine on a virtual windows running under VMWare Fusion on a Mac Pro.
I'm following the installation guide but arriving at the rake installation, I have an error message. (see snapshot in the jpeg file)
Any idea?

My configuration is exactly as requested in the installation guide under a Windows XP family edition

Thank you for your help.
Didier

I also had similar problems when installing on Vista, but unfortunately cannot remember the details. I was to lazy to notes of every step.

  1. Have you made sure that the versions of all the programs are compatible?
  2. Is the gem program in the folder in which you try to execute it?
  3. Are you using a proxy for the Internet?

I've followed the instruction.
I took the same version of each application as explained.
I tried to execute the commando gem install rake in the C:\webserver\Ruby\bin (directly where it is located) or other directories without success.
No proxy used for internet...

Any ideas?

It might be because the file path "C:\Documents and Settings\Proprietaire" has spaces in it. In which directory did you install Ruby? Try to install it in the default directory which is C:\.

The Redmine install instructions do not mention gem install rake, but it does mention gem install rack. Rake is part of the rails installation.

Hi,

I posted on a new way to install Redmine.
This procedure is dedicated to people having no Ruby/Rails skills (like me).
It is plateform-independant.

Take a look at http://www.redmine.org/boards/1/topics/27046
