i'm doing this in my install script ...

npm -g install npm@2
C:\Users\appveyor\AppData\Roaming\npm\npm -> C:\Users\appveyor\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules\npm\bin\npm-cli.js
npm@2.7.4 C:\Users\appveyor\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules\npm
npm --version

when i swear it was returning v 2.7.something .. earlier today.

Is there any trick for me to use the latest version of NPM in my script section?

    It should be:

    npm -g install npm@2
    set PATH=%APPDATA%\npm;%PATH%
    npm --version

    Ah drats! i had that set PATH.. code in, this morning .. but deleted that line when I was cleaning up the script.

    Added it back - all good.

    I guess this is the best way to make sure we're using the latest version of NPM?
