Hi all,
My mac had a hard disk disaster, and only after that did I discover I had
had a time machine backup disaster earlier, so I didn't have a backup from
after I got watir working on my vmware windows xp on the mac.

I reinstalled using the same steps I had done a few weeks back, but my watir
scripts don't work, I get an error that watir isn't found. When I do irb and
require 'watir', I get this:
irb(main):001:0> require 'watir'
LoadError: no such file to load -- watir
        from (irb):1:in `require'
        from (irb):1

I see emails on this list saying you have to require 'rubygems' before
require 'watir', and that *does* work, however, I never did that before.

Do I now have to go edit every Watir script I have and add require
'rubygems'? And is that going to work on a real PC? (I'm at home where I
don't have a PC right now).

I've never had problems like this installing watir - I have the latest of
both Ruby and Watir
ruby 1.8.6 patch level 287
watir 1.6.2

I installed per the instructions on http://wtr.rubyforge.org/install.html

This stuff only happens to me when I'm at home and have no other options!
