RubyStack hangs on Windows while installing

Hello! Firstly, I want to thank you for such a great efforts of creating BitNami packages!

I have a problem with RubyStack distributive (RubyStack 2.0-1) on my Windows Server 2003 machine. The installation hangs on “intalling gems..” status. I waited for a couple of hours – but nothing changed :( It seems that it hangs at the very end point, because the destination directory has 600MB of 37979 files. The guide says that there’s probably a conflict with MySQL – but I always set different ports for all different services.. I had WAMP installed, so I thought it could cause the problem. I uninstalled it (using uninstall.exe) and ALL related windows services and directories and tried to install RubyStack again – but no luck :((

Is there any clues what can cause such problems?

Thanks in advance

Just tried to install RedmineStack and got the same problem… the installed hung (The screenshot of the processes attached).
Also, tried to install it on Windows 7 machine – everything went fine :(

Sorry we can not reproduce on our side. The “Installing gems” process takes a lot of time (about 5 minutes) so maybe is not hang. Could you try in a XP or Vista system?

Well, I have tried everything I could to install the RubyStack on my Windows Server 2003… The OS itself is almost clean and has all window updates installed. I tried to close all background applications before running RubyStack install. But it still hangs… I waited for about 5 hours – so it definitely stuck :( But since the installation succeeded on Windows 7 – I’ll use it instead.

I just ran into the same issue installing on server 2003. The installation continued to hang. I found out the problem was a lack of memory on my virtual machine. I increased the memory of the vm to 1024 mb for the install and it went smooth.

Hope this helps
