How to install Watir?


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

ERROR: While executing gem ... (RuntimeError)
Error instaling watir:
watir requires win32-process >= 0.5.5

Please help me to install the watir.

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

  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.

Possibly here. Have you tried gem update --system again recently?
