$ gem install ruby-debug-ide ERROR: Error installing ruby-debug-ide:

    The 'ruby-debug-ide' native gem requires installed build tools.

Please update your PATH to include build tools or download the DevKit
from '' and follow the instructions
at ''

I have installed build-tools and DevKit
Still no luck Ruby 187 Aptana Studio 3, build:

build-tool lsfeatures sh.exe": /c/users/KALB/Appdata/local/Aptana Studio 3/Ruby/bin/build-tool: "c:/users/KALB/Appdata/local/Aptana: bad interpreter: No such file or directory
This path c:/users/KALB/Appdata/local/Aptana does not exist could space in Aptana Studio 3 be causing the problem
Can this path be changed?
Any help would be appreciated. Am I installing build-tool or DevKit wrong?

    Hi Tom,

    If you use railsinstaller to install your environment, you should have a much easier time. Please follow the instructions here for setting up the debugger:

    If you still have issues after following those steps, please let us know.
