I'm having some issues while trying to update gems on windows XP. I've installed InstantRails 2.0 and here are my ruby versions :

ruby : 1.9.1 p429
gem : 1.3.7
rails : seems to not be installed, trying "gem install rails --include-dependencies" and i have the same error message when I run "gem update --system"

Here is the error message :
" ERROR: does not appear to be a repository
ERROR: Could not find a valid gem 'rails' ()= 0) in any repository

I don't have internet connections issues, ping works fine...
I have full admin rights on my windows xp session.

Anyone can help ?

    Hi again guys.

    I tried to install InstantRails v1.7 instead of 2.0 and Rails seems to be installed...

    However, I'm stuck with a new issue when I run any commands, even "ruby script/server"

    "ERROR: While executing gem ... (gem::RemoteFetcher::FetchError) Too many open files - socket(2)(Errno::EMFILE)"

    I've try looking arround for a solution and i tried to edit the "c:\windows\system32\config.nt" file to add some files descriptors but did nothing...

    Any ideas ?

    Yeah, this seems really strange. Can you paste the output of gem env and gem install rails -V ?
