I am trying to install watir (ruby gem).
But I am getting the following error:

Error instaling watir:

It sounds like your win32-process is not supported by Watir. You might try the following:

  1. gem update --system 
  2. gem install watir --include-dependencies

I'm not sure what that means, but it sounds like it might be a problem with the rubyforge server.
