Hi,

I'm not a programmer; i downloaded taskjuggler-3.0.0.gem to my Win7/65 desk top.

Now what? How do I install it?

Thanks,

    I will recommend you get a book about programming, specially Ruby. A good one is this one:

    http://pragprog.com/book/ruby3/programming-ruby-1-9

    Also, information about gems:

    http://guides.rubygems.org/what-is-a-gem/

    And the install command
    http://guides.rubygems.org/command-reference/#gem_install

    Dunno what taskjuggler does but I recommend you read the documentation of taskjuggler:

    http://www.taskjuggler.org/

    This is not a support forum of gems, is a help section to deal with rubygems.org support issues.

    Thanks for the note.

    I'm just interested in using task-juggler (a scheduling program).
    I do not need to be a mechanical engineer to drive a car. :-)
    So I really do not want to learn programming so that I can use a program.

    I just need a sample code, command line, step-by-step, or what ever it may take to install taskjuggler-3.0.0.gem. I'm used to Windows programs that come with an installer (*.exe). This can't be "rocket science"?

    Thanks

    But you need to read the manual. Somewhere you learnt to drive a car, if wasn't your family or a friend, you saw or took a leason or two.

    Is not rocket science, is knwon as RTFM:

    haha.... yes I know RTFM.
    This is written for ... programmers.
    * So I see that I need to have rubygems package.... * I downloaded the rubygems zip file; unzipped to a new folder.
    * Going to the Windows command line ("shell") and changing directory to the location where rybygems is unzipped -- I can't get it to set up. * Typing "setup" or "setup.rb" is not something Windows know how to react to....

    I need another hint.....

    Yes, I get it; RTFM.... but it is written for programmers.
    * Downloaded Rubygems, unzipped into a folder * Using Windows command prompt (cmd.exe) changed directory to the unzipped folder * Do not know how to run "setup"????? Where is TFM?

    :-)

    See my previous response to you, get a programming manual.

    On the Task Juggler instructions is not mention "anyone can install this"

    Also, this is not a support forum for Task Juggler, again, this is a support for rubygems.org website itself, not it's gems.

    If you need to get Task Juggler running, please contact Task Juggler developers or pay a developer to install things on your system.
