npm install appium --chromedriver_version won't update driver
I am referring to this documentation: https://appium.io/docs/en/writing-running-appium/web/chromedriver/
My Dev config:
- npm v6.9.0
- Win 10 64 bit
- Appium Server v1.13.0
I tried to install a few different versions of ChromeDriver by using npm command (for example: npm install appium --chromedriver_version=“77.0.3865.40”). I also tried to restart Appium server between installations as well. Nothing helps and I still getting same error (see attached logs below). It seems like the ChromeDriver was not updated despite the nmp command and it still running an old version (Driver info: chromedriver=2.46.62840) …
Logs from Appium:

I would like to have some help here in order to resolve this issue.
