CLI still prompting npm install -g particle-cli (Jan 19)


I was using the CLI today and I got a prompt to update my current version of the CLI, and it is still prompting- npm install -g particle-cli

I’m running window 7 and I know I recently upgraded using the windows installer to v1.27.0. In the distant past I had run ‘npm install -g particle-cli’ on my laptop, which was also setup using the installer, and it REALLY messed up the CLI, and took me a long time to sort out. From that I got the impression npm install -g particle-cli is not recommend… But the CLI is still prompting it. Might it be worth changing the prompt?

I know its casued others problems when they had initially installed using the installer.

Welcome to the Particle Command line utility!

Maybe the CLI is now multiple times on your desktop PC installed: sometimes over npm and the installer?
