I am trying to install Shopify on my local machine (Windows 10). I am facing some errors while installing Shopify on Windows 10 system. Following steps were followed while installing.

- Installed Ruby+Devkit 3.0.2-1 on Windows 10 system.

- Installed RubyGems from https://rubygems.org/pages/download  
- Post Installation the following gem was successfully installed from the terminal: gem install shopify-cli
- I have node, yarn, rails, sqlite3 installed in my local system.

- If I run the command shopify version after installation to check if the gem is installed correctly then the below error is displayed.
