Shopify CLI stuck at version 2.6.6 in fresh install

Hi - 

I took a bit of a break from a large Shopify theme development project, but am hoping to publish soon.  My major issue is that I can't seem to install Shopify CLI 3x.

I am on a Windows 11 PC (64bit). 

I followed the instructions to un-install the CLI 2x using Ruby.   There were multiple installs of 2x which were deleted (the highest being 2.2x).  I upgraded have Ruby3.3 (64).  I have the latest version of Git.  I have Bundler 2.5.3.    I then followed the instructions to install the latest CLI.   No matter how many times I run the install, `$ shopify version` returns '2.6.6.'   Further, many of the commands seem to not function. 

In my package-lock.json for my PC, the package seems to have the CLI as the correct version (3.53.1).  However, I note that the OS does not include Win64, only Win32.  

Any assistance in getting the CLI 3.5 to work properly would be greatly appreciated!

shopify version is the command used on the old version - to use the new one, you'll need to use a package manager, like npm run shopify version
