I have two PCs, one with Windows XP and another with Windows Vista. I'm working as an administrator in both computers. I'm using Ruby 1.8.7 and Rubygems 1.3.6. When I try to install Rails I get this error:

C:\>gem install rails ERROR: While executing gem ... (Errno::ENOENT) No such file or directory - C:/Users/Jesús Dugarte

I have installed Rails several times before (although I haven't done it in about a year), and I'd never had this problem before. Has anything changed in the installation? I've found several cases similar to mine in internet, but none of the proposed solutions works for me.


Using this as a base, I manage to make it work. My gem.bat looks like this now:

@ECHO OFF SET _HOMEPATH=%HOMEPATH% SET HOMEPATH=\Ruby IF NOT "%~f0" == "~f0" GOTO :WinNT @"ruby.exe" "C:\Ruby\bin\gem" %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9 GOTO :EOF :WinNT @"ruby.exe" "%~dpn0" %* :EOF SET HOMEPATH=%_HOMEPATH%
