Managing Multiple Ruby Versions in 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I found a tool called PIK but unfortunately it is no longer maintained.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.
