Managing Multiple Ruby Versions in Windows

I ran into a situation where I needed to manage and work with multiple Ruby installations on Rails on a Windows System. Unfortunately RBENV and RVM do not run under windows.

I found a tool called PIK but unfortunately it is no longer maintained. However, the page at Pik led me to URU.

You can download URU at https://bitbucket.org/jonforums/uru/. URU is multi platform, but for now, I’m sticking with RBENV for my linux machines.

Update Dec 2017 – I have pretty much decided that Windows is not a good development platform for Rails in most situations. I’ve moved to either pure Ubuntu machines or running Ubuntu in an Oracle Virtualbox.
