Windows installation: How to install win32-service-0.5.2-mswin32.gem

Added by Scott ! over 10 years ago

When I put both

win32-service-0.5.2-mswin32.gem
and
mongrel_service-0.3.4-i386-mswin32.gem

together in C:\Program Files (x86),
then run cmd "gem install mongrel_service",
only 1 gem installs. Have re-tried this M A N Y times.

HOW TO MAKE WIN32 SERVICE INSTALL?

I'm so close to getting a working Redmine installation, this seems to be the final problem. Thank you for any help.

You can install it by the absolute path to the gem

eg:
gem install C:\Users\Scott\win32-service-0.5.2-mswin32.gem
if your gem in under the path of C:\User\Scott

Thank you.

Installing the 2 gems was finally successful after I moved Redmine and the 2 gems up to the Windows root at C:\.

Trying to put them at a lower level in the Windows directory structure to C:\Program Files (x86) seems to have been part of the problem (did not work).

The mongrel and windows service still will not start, but at least the gems are installed now.

Thank you.

Mongrel service did not run smoothly with 1.4 + MRI 1.9 for me, I had an issue with coookie management which was not present when I ran Mongrel with ruby script/server.

I eventually had to write a tiny myservice.rb using directly win32-service gem then sc create binPath= "ruby myservice.rb".
