Move 2.5 to new computer
When 2.0 was in preview, I paid the $15 for the 1.75b CD. Since then I have installed all the upgrades to 2.5 on my old computer. That computer died, and I am trying to install 2.5 on the new computer. I successfully installed 1.75b, but cannot figure out how to get to 2.5 without paying another $15. (It would be worth another $15, if that is my only option.) I searched the forums for upgrade info but, while most of the links still work, they don't do what the forum entry says they should do.

I found this post,
The free upgrade to NWC2 requires that you have both the NWC 1.75 CD in hand, as well as the registration label. You can use these materials to upgrade to NWC2 for free, starting at:

but the link no longer works.

On another note, I found an old post of mine at https://forum.noteworthycomposer.com/?topic=4903.msg30651#msg30651. I tried to make this post a reply to that one, but reply didn't seem to be an option. Do threads get "closed/locked" after a certain time?

No. The lock status can be changed by the Admin or the owner of the topic. Those who reply to topics that they did not start (own) are limited to "Modify" and "Remove".

Thanks. I think I was on that page, but I missed the link for upgrading from 1.75. Following that link, I got up to 2.5.
