Actually, I didn't set anything explicitly, but it seems to be a problem of the installer on Win 7:

I instalelled it using the default values (with the exception that I didn't let it modify my PATH settings - I prefer doing this manually). The installer then - this must be a new feature, because this didn't happen with 1.7.23 - creates a new entry in the start menu, for jirb. This entry has the name

   "irb (1.8.7)"

which is already a bit odd, and the link target is

   "C:\jruby-1.7.24\irb (1.8.7).exe"


Indeed, if I invoke jirb manually from my PATH, I get

    Welcome to the JRuby IRB Console [1.7.24 (1.9.3)]

So it's trivial to fix the properties of the Start menu entry, and the question boils down to: Why did the installer create a link to the 1.8.7 compatible version, and not to the current one? I've never had a Ruby of this version on this host, so the installer couldn't get any hint from the registry either. Also no environment variable containing the string RUBY present.

You must have a --1.8 in your jruby options or in your command line.

I do not see this on Win7 nor on Win10.

Great job jruby guys: the "io/console not supported" issue is gone on Windows. Hopefully it won't come back ;-)

I find the "1.8.7" a bit strange. Shouldn't this be the corresponding Ruby version? But in this case, the version number should be something like 1.9.3xxx.
