Thanks for the idea. I'll look for HOME first followed by USERPROFILE before failing with a better message than that :)

%HOME% is not reliably set. Some OSes will make it a combination of %HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%, but many don't (it's not set on my Vista x64 box, for example).
A much more reliable environment variable seems to be %USERPROFILE%.

I checked out r116 from SVN into a new clean folder. This is what I got:
private method `gsub' called for nil:NilClass
(See full trace by running task with --trace)
Taking a look at the rakefile,
SPEC_HOME = ENV['HOME'].gsub('\\', '/') + '/dev'
So the problem is that I don't have a HOME variable set. Am I unusual in this respect? Do most people have this set on their Windows machines by default?
