Upgrading to TFS 2012 Update 2

Team Foundation Server 2012 Update 2 was officially released so it was time for me to upgrade my local TFS (the one that I run on my laptop).  I was on TFS 2012 Update 1 and I was very happy with how easy and straight-forward the upgrade process was.  It took me about 20 minutes from the time I double-clicked on the tfs_server.exe until I was up and running.  Here are screenshots of my installation process:
