Sheza Munir

Ruby is an important programming language and development environment. We use Ruby in web development and data analysis, and it is also a general-purpose language.

In order to run Ruby on Windows, you must install Ruby and the required developer tools. The following steps will install Ruby in Windows:

  1. Go to the Ruby installer for Windows.

  1. Run the installer. Select the path where you want to set up Ruby files, accept the license, and then click Install. You can customize the options that pop up after clicking next each time, but the default configuration works well for general use.

  1. After Ruby is installed, you need to install relevant developer tools if you did not choose from the ‘with DevKit’ list. For that, go back to the downloads and set it up using the archives.
  2. Next, add Ruby to your PATH environment variables.
  3. To confirm if Ruby has been installed properly, open the command line and enter ruby --version. If the installed version number is printed, Ruby has been installed correctly.
