The manual installation of VM2 is quite easy. Just upload the files of the installation file so, that you have to merge the directories. Or in other words, copy the the directory /administrator/com_virtuemart to /administrator/com_virtuemart and so on. After that visit the view update Migration with the link /administrator/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&view=updatesmigration.
