However, after I upgraded to version 0.10.0, I get the following warning
*** WARNING: You must use ANSICON 1.31 or higher (http://adoxa.110mb.com/ansicon) to get coloured output on Windows
I actually like the win32console better than this as you can just put the win32console gem into your gemfile so you don't have to install ansicon separately.
Anyway, here are the steps on how to install ansicon.exe:
1. Download and unzip the file from https://github.com/adoxa/ansicon/downloads 2. open cmd and navigate to the unzipped folder 3. Navigate to x64 (if you have a 64 bit machine) otherwise navigate to x86 4. Type ansicon.exe -h and you will get the following: D:\Data\ansicon\x86>ansicon.exe -h ANSICON by Jason Hood
