    Hi,

    I am trying to install Ruby on a number of machines in a networked
    achool environmnent. The installation appears to go well yet on
    attempting to use Ruby it doesnt. Its like it has never been installed.
    The ruby folder is there, sitting at C:\ruby however using the command
    prompt I am met with a flat refusal to acknowledge that ruby exists on
    the machine. I am certain this is some kind of rights issue on the local
    machine which is quite restricted as it is a secondary school.

    I am trying to get this running so it an be taught to secondary school
    students next year despite the opposition from the techs. This
    installation problem is only giving them ammo as to why we need to stick
    with the old .NET stuff! arrgh!

    Has anyone had any experience in this situation? If so do you know of
    any permissions or rights that need to be set on the local machine that
    would solve the problem?

    Does running c:\ruby\bin\ruby.exe -v from the command line work (I think
    that's the correct path)? If so, it's probably a paths issue - you need
    to ensure that c:\ruby\bin got added to the PATH environment variable by
    the installer; run echo %PATH% to see what your current setting is.
