Ruby Installing a Ruby Development Environment Installing a Ruby Development Environment Installing the Treehouse VM on Windows

Wait, if you already installed Ruby on Windows, is this in lieu of that OR in addition to that? I am confused

Do you need to do the "Installing the Treehouse VM on Windows" if you've already done the previous process of installing Ruby on Windows? Are we installing it twice in two different places or is this another thing you need when you've already installed on Windows.

I am totally confused.

No, you just need one or the other.

I am totally confused. It doesn't appear that I can continue without going through these steps, but the steps to install Treehouse VM are incorrect and totally confusing. If I don't do the install of the VM, where are the files when I open Sublime Text? I don't see the testapp files in users>myname anywhere??????

Seeing all videos is not necessary, to get the badge you only need to answer the quiz at the end, I believe.
