How to upgrade NA1 to NA2 correctly on Windows?

As it seems I may need to conform NA2 here much sooner than I thought - I have spent about 30 minutes trolling around and still cannot find an actual install guide (how to) for NA2 on Windows?

Is this lack of any useful info a sign that I am overthinking this and should simply download NA2 (2.62) and fire it up on the DAW - toy overwrite NA1 and hoping that all will be well?

Do I uninstall NA1 first? Or anything else?

Appreciate any tips from the field.

Cheers

    You can simply run Native Access 2. To be safe, double check your installation preferences and you're good to go.

    Just wanted to leave a quick note to say - this worked perfectly and despite all the negatives around NA2 at this time - I could not find any problems whatsoever with a fresh install of 2.6.2.

    Even my specific locations prefs (except the location for initial downloads) came over without any issues.

    The tool is fast and offers much better filtering that NA1. Happy camper here.

    Hello,

    have uninstalled na1 first, then installed na2 and it worked for me that way.
