I am trying to install Beef in a WIndows 10 - 64 bit PC. I followed the instructions provided in the following link:


But I keep getting this error:

An error occurred while installing therubyracer (0.11.4), and Bundler cannot continue. Make sure that gem install therubyracer -v '0.11.4' succeeds before bundling.

I drilled down a bit & found that the installed version of therubyracer is 0.11.0beta1 x86-mingw32 whereas the installer is searching for version 0.11.4

In the link provided above, the following lines are mentioned in line 38:

Finally, edit beef's gem lock file by replacing the required ruby racer version with the version downloaded from the link above.

But when I do that I get this error:

Your lockfile is unreadable. Run rm Gemfile.lock and then bundle install to generate a new lockfile.

Can anyone please help me out with this?

  • What are the rights on the Gemfile.lock? – Dale May 21 '16 at 21:23

Make sure that all versions coincide E.G. If you are using a 64-bit version of Ruby make sure you use the appropriate 0.11.0beta1 x64-mingw and not the 0.11.0beta1 x86-mingw32 as you mentioned above.
