In my efforts to install Ruby on Rails and SpreeCommerce on my Windows 7 laptop, the problem that stumped me the longest was the ‘
spree install my_store‘ command that gave me the error:
'identify' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
Image magick must be installed.
I tried running ‘
gem install rmagick‘ first, which installed something, but it was still not sufficient to let me run the ‘
spree install my_store‘ command without aborting in an error.
After much searching on Google and concatenating all these outdated sources, I finally figured it out. Steps (and troubleshooting details) are below.
