Ruby under winME

Hi!

Is it possible to use ruby under winME?
After upgrading from windows 98 to winME, I cannot start ruby, a message
box telling me about an error in mswin32-ruby16.dll, but no details :frowning:

1.6.7-1 (one-click installer), also the 1.7.2 version mswin32-ruby17.dll

Yes. I used the pragprog installer, as well as the cygwin and the mingw
versions of ruby on windows “me”. No problems.

After upgrading from windows 98 to winME, I cannot start ruby, a message
box telling me about an error in mswin32-ruby16.dll, but no details :frowning:

So the exact text is “An error in mswin32-ruby16.dll” ? Strange.
Did you look if there are multiple copies of this dll on your hard drive?

Dont know. Maybe reinstall windows from scratch. This helps sometimes.

Yes. The message is Hungarian, but the meaning is the same:
Error in mswin32-ruby16.dll, Ruby will terminate. Try to reboot your
machine.

No. Still the same problem :frowning: And the same happens
(with 98lite…)

Now I reinstalled win98 (98lite), and it works fine.

But I want to run it under ME ;(
