Ruby on Rails Javascript Runtime is not Node.js

While following this tutorial:


When I go to the localhost in my browser and click on 'about your application's environment', it shows the 'JavaScript Runtime' as 'JScript', not Node.js.

I checked out the other thread in the forum about this, but the Nodejs I have installed IS the 64-bit version.

The Ruby version I have installed is the 32-bit version.

I don't want to start playing around with this before I've gotten some good advice, because I really don't understand what I'm dealing with.
