A member of my team is developing a Rails app on Windows XP. We are finding that when we run the app, either launching it within NetBeans or by opening a console and calling
Look in the
log/ directory - there should be a
development.log. I bet your output is there.
If it's not, make sure that directory is writable.
For how to see it while you're running: if you have git bash installed, or some other shell such as cygwin, then you can open a shell and do
tail -f log/development.log which will scroll the log as it gets stuff appended to it.
