I am sorry to repeat what I have seen in other threads, but the resolutions in those threads have not quite got me there yet.
I installed Ruby through the windows installer 1.9.2, having downloaded book-of-ruby earlier. I also downloaded and installed Ruby In Steel for VS.
The first issue I had when trying to run the examples in VA was that I got an error message telling me the Ruby Interpreter was in c:\ruby\bin .. when, in fact, I had installed 1.9.2 thru the windows installer and so it was in c:\ruby192\bin .. I changed the location in the Project.Properties and also in the Tools\Options\Projects and Solutions\Ruby In Steel\Default Ruby Interpreter setting in Visual Studio. I only got around this when I opended the stproj file and changed a third entry.
Next, I get an error message Cylon initialization failed (Unable to load DLL 'SteelCylon.dll': The specified module could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007E'))
One thread I found (http://sapphiresteel.com/forum/index.php?topic=236.0
suggested I should install 1.8.6 instead. So, I un-installed 1.9.2 and installed 1.8.6. But I get the same error. Should I un-install everything and start completely from scratch? I am new to Ruby and really think the book-of-ruby is going to be the best way for me to learn this and would prefer to use the VS IDE.
Thanks in advance for any help
