How do I get appium 1.2.1 or 1.2.2 for windows?

From the appium site if I download appium exe the latest version available seems to be 1.2.0.1. Is this the latest version for Windows?

You can install from npm for a more up to date server version.

Ok thanks. So presumably can just run it through the command prompt this way? Would just like to check if I install it this way, I cannot run it through a gui like the exe?

Correct. No gui update.
