    You also may that you need to use this "header in scripting "Content-type: text/plain\n\n";"

    as the first part of code sent to IIS Server.

    Thanx for helping me. I tried everithing and concluded that deploying Ruby web apps on IIS is just waste of time, nerves and money.
    I'll continue to deploy ruby apps on Linux/Apache via Pasenger. Deployment is easy, and whole setup of server is done in minutes.
    Maybe one day when somebody makes an app for deployment on IIS6/7/+ (that actualy works),  I'll migrate my apps on Windows.
    Until that day I'll deploy on Linux.

    It supports Ruby 1.9 and Rails 3.x. JRuby, MRI 1.8.7 as well as Rails 2.3.x support will be added very soon.

    I think that you are correct with this. I have been trying to deploy my rails app and have had little to no success. Looks like it favors a linux server much more and hopefully is easier in the future to setup. I was thinking about trying python, but pretty scared as well.

    There is a way to run RoR on IIS 8 via HttpPlatformHandler - described by Scott Hanselman in his post: Announcing: Running Ruby on Rails on IIS8 (or anything else, really) with the new HttpPlatformHandler
