Installation Issues on School Network

Hi,

I am trying to install Ruby on a number of machines in a networked
achool environmnent. The installation appears to go well yet on
attempting to use Ruby it doesnt. Its like it has never been installed.
The ruby folder is there, sitting at C:\ruby however using the command
prompt I am met with a flat refusal to acknowledge that ruby exists on
the machine. I am certain this is some kind of rights issue on the local
machine which is quite restricted as it is a secondary school.

I am trying to get this running so it an be taught to secondary school
students next year despite the opposition from the techs. This
installation problem is only giving them ammo as to why we need to stick
with the old .NET stuff! arrgh!

Has anyone had any experience in this situation? If so do you know of
any permissions or rights that need to be set on the local machine that
would solve the problem?

Does running c:\ruby\bin\ruby.exe -v from the command line work (I think
that's the correct path)? If so, it's probably a paths issue - you need
to ensure that c:\ruby\bin got added to the PATH environment variable by
the installer; run echo %PATH% to see what your current setting is.
