I’m exploring Watir as part of my presentation I’m developing for next week’s DevGroup meeting.
I ran into one hitch when trying to install Watir right after installing Ruby via the One-Click: you need to exit the Explorer and shell sessions you may have open, then restart them. Do this in order to get the PATH environment variable updated — Watir has to find Ruby on the path or it dies out with a “windows installer error” and complains about not being able to write “\watir\AutoltX.chm”. Note the path — suspiciously like a web path, which keyed me into the idea about not being able to find the Ruby executable.
Am I one bright guy or what?
