I install Rider using the JetBrains toolbox, and I generally use the Nightly builds, so the install location changes a lot. I don't want to keep updating an alias, so I made this. It finds all the installations of Rider under %LOCALAPPDATA%\JetBrains\Toolbox\apps\Rider and runs the most recent version it finds.

Hope somebody else finds it useful.
