Installed F2P version & played for a day. Buying expansions now. Do I have to uninstall /reinstall?

After playing the F2P version for a day. Decided I wanted to purchase the expansions tomorrow. Do I have to uninstall the F2P version I installed, then install the game from scratch again? Or just resart my PC then login to the game and it will automatically update? btw, yes, I know after I make the purchase I have to login to my web account and enter the redeem code into my account to activate the expansions.

    No need to restart the computer or uninstall anything. Once you redeem your Serial Key, the next time you log in, the game will download any additional files it needs, if any. (You will have to log out of the game and back in.)

    Welcome to Tyria, and good luck.

    Yep. everything is already there on your computer, you just don't have access to all with a free account. Buying the game unlocks that access. You only have to relog into the game once, and you are good to go.
