First @angular-cli is not installed globally in my windows pc. I find out with:

ng -version

I have the message

'ng' is not recognized as an internal or external command

when I do

where ng

I have

INFO: Could not find files for the given pattern(s).

So with that info I suppose I don't have @angular-cli installed globally.

What I have are a lot of projects where I use @angular-cli version 6 but not installed globally.

For that reason I install the latest version of angular with:

npm install -g @angular/cli@latest

Now if I list global dependencies

npm list -g --depth=0

I get the correct one

+-- @angular/cli@7.3.5

Now if I check its version

ng --version

I have instead of version 7.3.5 the old version 6.2.8

Angular CLI: 6.2.8 Node: 10.14.2 OS: win32 x64 Angular:

When I generate a new project with

ng new newapp

in my package.json I have the old version of @angular-cli 6.2.8 and angular 6.1.0

{ "name": "newapp", "version": "0.0.0", "scripts": { "ng": "ng", "start": "ng serve", "build": "ng build", "test": "ng test", "lint": "ng lint", "e2e": "ng e2e" }, "private": true, "dependencies": { "@angular/animations": "^6.1.0", "@angular/common": "^6.1.0", "@angular/compiler": "^6.1.0", "@angular/core": "^6.1.0", "@angular/forms": "^6.1.0", "@angular/http": "^6.1.0", "@angular/platform-browser": "^6.1.0", "@angular/platform-browser-dynamic": "^6.1.0", "@angular/router": "^6.1.0", "core-js": "^2.5.4", "rxjs": "~6.2.0", "zone.js": "~0.8.26" }, "devDependencies": { "@angular-devkit/build-angular": "~0.8.0", "@angular/cli": "~6.2.8", "@angular/compiler-cli": "^6.1.0", "@angular/language-service": "^6.1.0", "@types/jasmine": "~2.8.8", "@types/jasminewd2": "~2.0.3", "@types/node": "~8.9.4", "codelyzer": "~4.3.0", "jasmine-core": "~2.99.1", "jasmine-spec-reporter": "~4.2.1", "karma": "~3.0.0", "karma-chrome-launcher": "~2.2.0", "karma-coverage-istanbul-reporter": "~2.0.1", "karma-jasmine": "~1.1.2", "karma-jasmine-html-reporter": "^0.2.2", "protractor": "~5.4.0", "ts-node": "~7.0.0", "tslint": "~5.11.0", "typescript": "~2.9.2" } }
How can I generate an @angular-cli project version 7 or 8 ?
what I'm doing wrong ?
If I have installed version 7 globally why ng version gives me version 6 instead of 7 ?
I must have somwhere a angular-cli version 6 that is still being picked up.
