Upgrade patches not working in KSP Store

Question

I'm trying to update to 1.9, and I tried using the upgrade patch in the KSP store to go form 1.8.1 to 1.9, but it didn't seem to work. The patcher says my game is now updated, but it's still 1.8.1 when I load up the game. Is there anything I'm doing wrong? I would rather not have to redownload the whole game just to get the newest patch.

Maybe there is an official way to do it, but there is a non conventional way to force the upgrade.

[1] Then run the "Launcher.exe" and click on upgrade.

(If the upgrade option is not available)

rename on root dir, this file from buildID64.txt to buildID64.txt_ (for example to disable it)

Then run the "Launcher.exe" and click on upgrade.

I just tried this, the only thing that happens is it takes me to the KSP store website and tells me to download it manually.

and why not?

If you have steam should be straightforward.

Anyway, backup all your KSP directory before try/force any upgrade.

Specially GameData and Saves directories.

Unfortunately, I don't have it on steam. I got it directly from the KSP website.

Follow the instructions written of that page, after click on "upgrade" button, can't help you more than that.

The launcher has never worked. I've never used the patch. Download the whole game. Make a new install.
