vctl system start pulls old version on Windows

Is there a way to have "vctl system start" pull a newer version of kind.exe and kubectl.exe?   When I update the files inside $env:USERPROFILE\.vctl\bin with newer versions, then try to vctl system start, the new versions get clobbered.

PS C:\Users\user1\.vctl\bin> vctl system start
INFO The version of kind.exe is not expected. Current version is v0.11.1, and version v0.9.0 will be downloaded
INFO The version of kubectl.exe is not expected. Current version is v1.21.2, and version v1.19.1 will be downloaded
