Hello,

You might give it a try but you'll encounter lots of issues and problems for sure. All recommendations are against upgrading and in favor of a clean new install:

Hi,

You're welcome. I'd also choose not to follow that 'dark' path...

If you consider your problem solved then please mark the thread as such.

Kind regards,

Eric
