Ok... I tried a brand new installation of Ruby and Watir on a fresh
win xp install using a VMWare virtual machine and everything works
perfectly... I have both MS Visual Studio 2005 and Visual Studio 6.0
installed on my computer... I'm starting to beleive it might be a dll
version conflict caused by Visual Studio... What do you think of this?
Is it possible?
