RVM not working after Rails Installer (Windows)

Installed Rails Installer that they suggested and now i'm onto generating the application and it says to do rvm use 1.9.3 (which is my version, I checked) and whenever I type rvm anything in command prompt it says "rvm is not recognized as an internal or external command" - I ran rails new treebook anyway and it worked. Is this something I need to be concerned about or fix?

You need to install Rails version manager. However i had a nightmare doing it on windows so for an easy solution us [www.nitrous.io] this is free for 1 workstaion and it gives you everything you need to get going. Seems to leave windows users behind in the videos.

As the teacher notes located below the video state you don't need to type rvm use on Windows.

Can you help me please James Barnett got going on RoR in Nitrous as you suggested and its perfect. Just hit a snag im on this video http://teamtreehouse.com/library/build-a-simple-ruby-on-rails-application/creating-an-authentication-system/installing-devise-2 and think i followed outdated instructions. How can i remove devise from the app and start it again? Thanks

James Barnett think i got it rolled back using git reset --hard

That's one of the great things about version control systems like git, it's like a time machine for your code.
