Fail to properly install "mgnl jumpstar".


I'm following steps from


- suggested windows xcopy command have error it should use back slashes in path

>xcopy .\_dev\content-to-bootstrap .\apache-tomcat\webapps\magnoliaAuthor\WEB-INF\bootstrap\common  /e/h


- command "mgnl jumpstart" didn’t print options, thus I don't know what's installed or not

- finally when I open localhost:8080 and click "Run the Web update on the author instance"

  browser open http://localhost:8080/magnoliaAuthor/.magnolia/admincentral and render 404 page

Turn out that I had quite old magnolia CLI app and accidentally miss this step.
Looks like reinstalling magnolia CLI fix the problem.
