     Nope, it will not. It uses an old Ruby version. Code samples dont work with the latest Ruby.

    Since you have tried to install Ruby for Rails post the exact errors it helps with fixing problems.

    Most common problems for Ruby install with FastCGI are path/name/permissions case does make a difference

    long path names are a killer.

    IIS Server Users,Accounts need correct permissions in the IIS Server,,C:\Windows\Temp and Ruby install location.

    For more recent information check the links & information below.

    General Note: The Methods to get Perl going on IIS server do apply to Ruby install & config.

    Could you look at Ruslany's Blog Ruby on Rails (RoR) information along

    with  IIS 7.0 Server Side web site 10 steps to get "Ruby on Rails running on Windows with IIS FastCGI" located

    here http://ruslany.net/2008/08/ruby-on-rails-in-iis-70-with-url-rewriter/ and

    here http://mvolo.com/blogs/serverside/archive/2007/02/18/10-steps-to-get-Ruby-on-Rails-running-on-Windows-with-IIS-FastCGI.aspx 

    and this Blog post for Ruby version 1.87 here http://anlek.com/2011/01/rvm-install-1-8-7-p330-fails/ .

    The information in both articles should cover what you need.

    If not there are answered posts in the IIS Net PHP Community, FastCGI areas for special conditions.

    After you use the articles for install and get errors or issues you can always post questions to this Forum.

    I hope this helps,


    Martin :)
