Installing question

I've just started using ruby and I'd really like to put this on my server (windows 2003). I've got quite a few .NET 2 apps on there, would this affect any of them? Also if something goes wrong with the installation is there an easy way to remove it?

The uninstaller will remove all files except the c++ runtime libraries which may have been installed by other apps.

There shouldn't be any issues running it alongside applications but with one issue. If you have 2.0 web applications that are expected to run 64-bit mode then you will have to run them 32-bit mode (this only affects x64 server 2003).

As far as removing what is installed, you would simply need to manully remove the created website (and its application pool if you created one) under IIS Management Console. The uninstaller doesn't remove any of those settings it does remove any files that were installed (except the c++ runtime libraries which may be needed by other applications).

Other than that, you should be good to go!
