Help, Ruby won’t install on my Laptop

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

Why is Ruby not installing on my Laptop? I just started learning Ruby general purpose programming Language and installing it on my laptop is posing a lot of challenges. I have tried many implementations of Ruby and none seem to be working on my laptop. What implementation of Ruby can be installed without Xcode?

If you want to install Ruby, make sure to select the correct version for your operating system. If you are just beginning to learn Ruby, they recommend that you install the latest 64-bit version, Ruby+Devkit 2.6.5-1 (x64), which is the latest version at the moment. The latest version provides the biggest number of compatible gems.

It also installs MSYS2-Devkit together with Ruby so that gems with C-extensions can be compiled immediately. They also said that the x86 or the 32-bit version should only be used if custom 32-bit native DLLs or COM objects are needed to be used. To get the Windows installer, go to RubyInstallers download page. The installer is available in two types: with Devkit and without Devkit.
