svn metasploit on windows

* Download latest tortoisesvn
* Create a directory with any name (ex: metasploit)
* Checkout latest metasploit version by using
* Download ruby packaged by One-Click Ruby Installer Project.
* ruby185-22.exe is recommended for this example.
* Install it in any directory

* Download Ruby/GTK2 binaries for Windows.
* ruby-gnome2-0.16.0-1-i386-mswin32.exe is recommended for this example.
* Execute it. Basically, you don't need to change any settings. There are three points you can set it by yourself.
  • GTK2 Runtime: If you have your own GTK2 binaries(and the bin-path is added to PATH), you may check off this option. But it is heavily recommended to check on this option.
  • Register Environment Variables: The GTK2 Runtime bin-path is added to PATH. If you want to use tools such as msginit, msgmerge, etc ..., this option is useful. But if you don't need them, you shouldn't check this option. Especially, if you have some other GTK2 applications, it may causes any DLL conflicts.
  • Choose the install directory: Note that you need to choose the ruby-install-dir (Ex: c:\Ruby).
* Time to test it.
* The following commands should be typed on the "Prompt for DOS". To open the Prompt for DOS on:

C:\>ruby -v
ruby 1.8.0 (2003-05-26) [i386-mswin32]

C:\>ruby -e "require 'gtk2'"

C:\>ruby -rgtk2 -e ";Gtk.main"

* If it didn't return any error, it's done.
