i made it to work by loading rubygems first.

U:\>irb
irb(main):001:0> require 'watir'
LoadError: no such file to load -- watir
from (irb):1:in `require'
from (irb):1
irb(main):002:0> require 'rubygems'
=> true
irb(main):003:0> require 'watir'
=> true
irb(main):004:0>


However, i never had to load rubygems before. the script i am running
was working before i reimaged my machine and reloaded ruby. what did i
miss in my install that i have to require 'rubygems' now.

There is an environment variable that automatically loads rubygems.

irb. dont know how to troubleshoot this.

Perhaps your old system had the following environment variable:
RUBYOPT=rubygems setup.

RUBYOPT=rubygems setup.

last time, i used 1 click intaller. not this time. so i probably have
to setup the environment variable. How does it look like.
RUBYOPTS=<WHAT SHOULD I PUT HERE>

RubyInstaller no longer adds RUBYOPT

See above, I showed you what RUBYOPT should be set to.

this actually works.
RUBYOPT=rubygems
this did not work
RUBYOPT=rubygems setup
