Upgrading the arcgis package

Hi All,

I am trying to upgrade the arcgis python package but am stuck on how to use the new environment with Jupyter Notebooks.


I am following the instructions here - Install and set up | ArcGIS for Developers


I am able to create the new environment and get the upgraded package with no problem.



The next step in the doc is "Open the Python Command Prompt: Start > All Programs > > ArcGIS > ArcGIS Pro > Python Command Prompt" but this opens the command prompt in the old environment (arcgispro-py3).



Did I miss a step? I see that the Python Command Prompt reads the environment location from a config file (which is still pointing to the old environment), am I supposed to edit this?


Sometimes the space in my user profile causes problems but the package manager won't let me choose where to install the new environment.


Any ideas?
