E:\Ruby\bin\ruby.exe E:\Ruby\myprogram-beta1\sources\scripts\embed


Or preferable you add Ruby\bin to your PATH:

SET PATH=%PATH%;E:\Ruby\bin

And then you can invoke "ruby embed" directly from inside the scripts
folder.

to add Ruby\bin to your PATH with:

SET PATH=%PATH%;E:\Ruby\bin

or

SET PATH=%PATH%;E:\Ruby\bin\ruby.exe

To invoke  command directly from inside the scripts folder, should I 
directly run MS-DOS command ruby.exe embed.rb
C:\Documents and Settings\User>  ruby.exe embed.rb
or or first change directory from default windows to
E:\> ruby.exe embed.rb ?

THANKS.
