Upgrade WFA from to



Does someone know if it's possible to upgrade from to directly?

Or should I upgrade to a mid version and then to


Thanks a lot!






1. Take the backup of your existing WFA2.2. If you are planning to install WFA3.1P2 on a different windows box( other than where the original wfa2.2 was present) , then you need to take the wfa key from the existing wfa. How to take this key? See installation and setup Guide. its simple 1 line CLI step


2. Install WFA3.1P2  freshly.

3. Restore the backup obtained in step(1). Restore the key as well if it was required.



No need for any intermediate WFA installations.

As per the instructions in the Installation and Setup Guide, you have to upgrade to a mid-version (i.e., WFA 3.0 in this case) and then to 3.1P2. There is no direct way possible.
