Easel driver 0.3.2 install hangs

Hi, I’ve been using Easel for several months now (W10 machine). I just started to install the updated driver (as the GUI suggests); but it hangs at “Verifying installation…”.
I saw this post Easel (Windows v0.3.2) Install Hangs. I’m grateful for that post, but do I really have to do that just to get the updated driver? I’d just assume leave the old one as is; however, I also don’t know if I’ve already overwritten it with the installer.
Is there any near-term plan to fix the installer?
