Initializing cordova project

Unable to add plugins. Perhaps your version of Cordova is too old. Try updating (npm install -g cordova), removing this project folder, and trying again. (CLI v1.7.11)

Cordova plugins are not related to plugman.
What does cordova -v displays?

I solve this problem by uninstalling all previous versions of

Cordova and ionic through commandnpm uninstall -g cordova and npm uninstall ionic
After that goto


and then delete the folders from with the name

.ionic and .corodova

After that again open cmd and write commands npm install -g cordova which will install Cordova and after installing Cordova restart/logoff your Pc then again goto cmd and install ionic by typing npm install -g ionic

And after that create new project it will work fine. Don’t forget to delete those folders otherwise it will generate same error.
