Hi everybody,

As new SP2 has just arrived I was wondering whether I should first de-activate my current installation of Trados Studio 2015 before installing the new SP or just upgrade on top of my current installation.

Many thanks in advance for any answers and/or useful tips.

Installed it on top of the old one Mar 8, 2016

Usually when there is an update, you don't need to uninstall the old one.

I've just run the update, it I have not noticed any problems so far, except some puzzling error message regarding SDL Cloud, which I have not yet got an answer to.

You can simply install SR2 on top of your existing installation. There is no need to uninstall anything nor to return your license for this.
