I'm trying to update to a newer version of pgfplots, preferably v1.12. I'm currently using v1.7.
First, I opened
Update (admin mode) with MikTeX and it didn't have any updates for pgfplots. Then I downloaded the folder from CTAN for v1.12 and followed the instructions in the manual: opened
Settings (admin mode), went to
Root, added unzipped folder, moved it to the top (it was the only thing listed), applied.
\pgfplotsversion still listed 1.7.
Then opened the
Package Manager (admin mode), changed repositories, synced, installed pgfplots and pgf (both listed as being updated in 2014).
\pgfplotsversion STILL lists 1.7 being used.
What else can I try or what am I doing wrong?
Edit: When I check the "Show MikTeX-maintained root directories" box, I see two other things. Is it a problem that I can't move my option up before one of them? See picture.
