On Watir forum, there are countless posts on how to get started with Watir, some popular questions are:
- Unable to install?!
- How to install Watir behind a firewall on Windows?
- How to use Watir with RSpec?
It will be a pity for testers giving up on Watir because having difficulty in installation. Actually, it can be made very simple. That's why I created the Watir One-Minute Quick Start Guide.
