Installing the Treehouse VM on Windows lesson: no treehouse-vm.zip files listed in the drop down menu
The site given at the vm.teamtreehouse.com video lesson ("Installing the Treehouse VM on Windows", time position 3:35 minutes) by Jason Seifer, does not look the same as the one that I get when I go to vm.teamtreehouse.com . The one I get has a drop down menu but nowhere is the "treehouse-vm.zip" that Jason mentions in the video. Instead I get the drop down menus with 7 options: 1-User Authentication with Rails, 2-Build a Todo list with Rails 4, 3-Upgrading a Ruby on Rails Application, 4-Rails Layout and CSS Frameworks, 5-Build a Simple Ruby on Rails Application, 6-Building Social Features in Ruby on Rails, 7-Advanced Social Features in Ruby on Rails.
So which one or what do I pick to complete the Treehouse VM lesson if the "treehouse.vm.zip" is not listed? And how do I continue following the video for the zip file mentioned in the video if it is not there to install exactly like the video instructs to follow along? :-((

We've updating that site slightly since creating the Treehouse VM to include more courses. Choose the course you are following along with from the dropdown and download the accompanying zip file. That takes the place of "treehouse-vm.zip" and is specific for each course.
The course people at this stage are doing "Installing a Ruby Development Environment" isn't listed in those options, so how do you know which one to pick?
Installing Ruby is the bane of my life at the moment! :'(
Thank you, I got sorted in the end and just picked one of the options that gave the treehouse-vm.zip and it all seems OK now! I've given up on installing it directly on Windows, much prefer the virtual machine.
Thank you :)
