hmm, sometimes this happens when you try to do an install in a location where a directory of the same name already exists.

Just note that the new version of ionic’s CLI is 1.1.6


when i check the version in npm, it gives me cli version 1.0.17


Hmm odd. What version of node do you have installed?


The latest version; 0.10.29


Hmm, can you try to uninstall the CLI and then add it back in?

npm uninstall -g ionic

npm install -g ionic


To no avail. The issue still persists.
I still have the same CLI version. However when I start a new project and meander to the lib/ionic and open the version.json file, it states the following:
“version”: “1.0.0-beta.10”,
“codename”: “gadolinium-gator”,
“date”: “2014-07-25”,
“time”: “00:06:44”
it claims the latest beta yet has issues installing as i mentioned and maintains the codename of gator.
it is confusing to say the least.


Hmm, try to install from say your desktop or documents. Something could be there hidden causing issues.
