When I give the command for installing the ionic@beta
npm i -g --verbose ionic@beta

I get the following reply in the cmd:

npm verb exit [ 0, true ]
npm info ok

Does it mean that I have installed Ionic@beta???

Once I give the following command:

ionic -v

It shows me the following:

'ionic' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
