Distibutions utilisées :
- rubyinstaller-1.9.2-p0, - glade3-3.6.7-with-GTK+, - GTK-Runtime-Environment-, - ruby-gtk2-0.90.2.tar. Processus appliqué :
- installation de rubyinstaller-1.9.2-p0 en C:\Ruby, - installation de glade3-3.6.7-with-GTK+ en C:\GTK2, - installation temporaire de GTK-Runtime-Environment- en C:\Gtk, - copie de tous les répertoires et fichiers de C:\Gtk vers C:\GTK2, - décompression de ruby-gtk2-0.90.2.tar en C:\Ruby et C:\GTK2, par précaution. Résultats :

    This is not a Rails issue and shouldn't be reported to Rails issue tracker. Please bring this topic to Ruby/GTK2

    For the sake of answering your problem: your installation/extraction of ruby/gtk2 is not in the LOAD_PATH where Ruby expect to find it.

    Please follow the instructions of Ruby/GTK2 to properly install it.
