Also the Windows testing/autotesting setup has many dead-end rabbit holes.

Just getting things set up right. I know I had to add devkit before; and that there's some tweaking of environment variables; but no clear set of steps to follow. There is a pik devkit command, which throws an error.

Hmm. There is this,
http://puneetpandey.com/tag/how-to-install-devkit-on-windows/
which reminded me to edit devkit\config.yml and add the new ruby location, e.g.
- C:/Ruby187
- C:\Users\Ed.pik\rubies\Ruby-192-p136
- C:\Users\Ed.pik\rubies\Ruby-193-p0

Maybe that's what pik devkit was supposed to do for me!

If anyone could add some notes on Windows installation, feel free.

It's been awhile since I started with Rails, and I use pik; but I'm still finding upgrading to 1.9.3 a challenge.

On Windows, I get the error

> operable program or batch file.

When I ran bundler, though, spork installed 3 windows gems
