I also should mention a window pops up after running the command
>ruby simple.rb

the window says

ruby.exe - Unable to Locate Component.

this application has failed to start because LIBMYSQL.dll was not found. 
Re-installing the application may fix this problem.


Does that help any more with what this problem is?
What should I do?
