Installing a Ruby Development Environment on Windows

Running the installer is straightforward. Run it, follow the directions on the screen. Most are straightforward, however there is one thing that’s easy to miss. On the dialog pictured here, make sure you check both boxes. Otherwise Ruby won’t be in the command-line patch, and won’t be associated with .rb and .rbw files. However, if you plan on installing more than one version of Ruby, you may want to leave these boxes unchecked.
