what upgrade are you talking about, from v1 to v2 ?
yes
you have misunderstood this thread...
there is no upgrade from MSE v1 to v2.
the upgrade mentioned here is to a newer version of v1.

MSE v2-beta must be downloaded separately, then v1 must be uninstalled before you install v2-beta.

when v2-beta is finally released there might be an upgrade directly from v1.

so you can relax, Microsoft is NOT forcing you to upgrade to MSE v2-beta....

It is an update to Version 1 that you have installed not a new version.
It is very poor terminology by MS.

It's not quite bad terminology

You are infact upgrading from 1 revision/version to another so technically it is an upgrade.

My question still stands to adictontakt, why not download the upgrade? You'll find that it probably hosts stability & security updates that cannot be downloaded via the definition updates.

Confusing terminology for many.
