+ If you want to install to a machine that doesn't have Ruby installed yet, you can download the latest msi file from github[http://github.com/vertiginous/pik/downloads]. Or, just run:
+ >msiexec /i http://github.com/downloads/vertiginous/pik/pik-n.n.n.msi
+
+
If you install to a directory that's not in your path, you'll need to add it to the path yourself. Microsoft has good instructions[http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310519] on that. After that, you should be ready to run pik.
* If this is a first-time install, look at pik add, and pik install to set up your environment.
