ruby on windows

16 Oct 2015

I’ve had some trouble installing gems on windows instances using bundle install. I had this problem first at ~2009. The problem is missing certificates.

While this fix is correct, a quick and dirty approach is to make sure that your gem files have source http instead of https:

# A sample Gemfile
source ""

gem 'albacore'
gem 'nuget_helper'

This means that the communication to download gems from rubygems is not private.
