I've tried to greet Rails installed for the past day on 2 different Windows workstations.
I download and run the 2.3 installer and it runs fine. I can launch the interpreter but I couldn't issue any rails commands like to create a new project. I waa able to do that with the gitbash app but I'm following a tutorial and this person was using a mac and terminal program.
I also could not run the bundle install or update gems.
Anyone else having trouble or am I missing a simile step?

What happens when you type: gem install rails
I was getting errors and also could not start git bash.
I’m doing better now having installed git outside of the rails installer bundle.
Did the railsinstaller bundle. I didn’t solve my problem until I downloaded and installed git outside of that. Now, I cannot run rake commands even after updating the path. Using Ruby 5.0 and Rails 2.2 & 2.3.
This is the second workstation to behave this way. I may try and install an ubuntu as a dual boot and try that.
C9.io is a better bet if you’re just starting out. Just follow the guide in the railstutorial.org
