Note that git will create a fubumvc folder. <li>Get ruby from * It should be irrelevant which version you use (1.8.x or 1.9.x). <li>Once installed, ensure you have the necessary dependencies: * from your fubumvc folder, run InstallGems.bat. <li>When all the gems have been installed successfully, you can run β€œrake” for the project

If you have ruby 1.9.x you should ensure that rubyzip 0.9.4 is installed.


If you are e.g. logged in with a domain user at home it can be that your HOMEDRIVE and HOMEPATH environment vars point to a non-existing path. Even though ruby installs nothing there by default, it bombs out nonetheless if the home drive cannot be reached. Bail-out here is to define a HOME variable and let it point to e.g. %USERPROFILE%
