Hi All,

I installed Ruby 1.9.0-03 (ruby 1.9.0 (2008-07-25 revision 18217)
[i386-mswin32]) over WinXP/SP2 a few days ago.  It works great.

That installation included gem 1.2.0.1824.  I searched for a Rails gem
and got:

K:\_Utilities\Ruby>gem list rails -r
*** REMOTE GEMS ***
rails (2.1.0)
[snip]

I tried a number of permutations/combinations of:
gem install rails =96r

They all failed with:
ERROR:  While executing gem ... (URI::InvalidURIError)
    bad URI(is not URI?):

Gem under my Ruby 1.8.6 installation was working fine a while back.
My Firefox 2.0 browser is working fine.  Any idea what the problem
might be?

Thanks in Advance,
Richard
