If you have a version of the game, ANY version, it will eventually update to 2.5, the only thing that is different is which one gets it first. So... you don't need to do ANYTHING. Sit back and wait for the prompt.

If you have multiple versions of the game.... DO NOTHING. It will do its thing when the time comes in the most efficient manner. When it's done, keep 2.5 and delete the others. If for some reason you want to keep 1.5, it will be made available as a separate download at a future date, but will no longer be supported.

Do you see the common thread in both cases? DO NOTHING. It's really simple. WAIT UNTIL AFTER THE UPDATE. Then you can worry about which installs you want to keep.

Extremely. Simple. Stop. Over. Complicating. Things.
You're all thinking... WAAAAAY too much. It's 2018, this stuff is mostly automated

ON THAT NOTE, I'm pleased to see with my current setup all I have to do is sit back, smoke a cigar, and watch the madness while bemusedly muttering "You poor bastards..."

Switching the PC on and returning to DCS after a forced break (12 months) to undertake a house renovation ... I was expecting to spend a few nights updating Windows 10, DCS and other out-of-date stuff on my computer but... Jesus... (what happened!) 38 pages on and I am totally confused but, thankfully feel more at ease now that I have just read this post (see above) - many thanks
