'vagrant' is not recognized as an internal or external command

This course takes you very quickly through many downloads to create the programming environment for Ruby. I followed the download instructions as well as I could given that the course seems to have been made in 2014 so the versions downloaded are newer. I pretty much stuck to the newest version for Windows of whatever it was I was downloading. I downloaded vagrant, dont know what it does exactly, and I downloaded cmder. When I tried to run the "vagrant up" command it gave me the above error message.

Getting this dealt with would be nice, but I would rather find a simpler solution to create the programming environment; any advice along those lines would be greatly appreciated.
