Using 1.9 in Windows

Hi,

I've held off on beta-testing the newest RubyMine, because I haven't installed 1.9 yet.  Been waiting until a One Click installer for Windows was ready, but after all this time it doesn't seem to be imminent.

Those of you are already working with RubyMine 2.x beta - did you manually install Ruby 1.9?  If so, any problems?



Regards,

Hi DChild,

The only one known major issue so far is related to debugging using Ruby1.9. Please have a look at this thread: http://www.jetbrains.net/devnet/thread/283957?tstart=0

Hi DChild,

I've used ruby 1.9 on windows. There is a Technology Preview of One Click Installer, that can be found here http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=167. Also you can use 1.9 from official ruby site,
but official distribution misses some dlls(libeay32.dll, readline.dll, ssleay32.dll, zlib.dll). You can simply copy them from you 1.8 installation bin folder to 1.9 bin folder.

Dennis and Oleg,

Thanks, I didn't realize there was something like a Technology Preview installer out there.  I just installed the most recent 1.9 version, then RubyMine 2.x beta, then the gems and Rails 2.3.4.  

Will test it over the next week, see if any problems, thanks for the quick pointers.
