I never had an Electro 2. But it should work this way:

1. Get the USB driver for NE2: https://www.nordkeyboards.com/sites/def ... 0Setup.zip, unzip it and get the result installed on that 32bit Windows computer;

2. Get the Nord Electro Tool software (from https://www.nordkeyboards.com/downloads/nord-electro-2, too), unzip it and get it onto that computer as well; install it; it's your sample dump utility;

3. Download the factory piano library from https://www.nordkeyboards.com/sound-lib ... ory-sounds; it seems to contain E.piano1_3, El.Grand2_2, Wur1_2, Ac.Grand5_1, Clav1_2 and E.Piano2_2.

I have no idea if you can download the factory sample set without step 2 so that step 1 and 3 would be enough - might be possible. I also don't know if there is a way to get other piano samples instead for the Electro 2 and download them with the Nord Electro Tool.

The best way to move those files from your internet computer to that older one would be a USB stick, I think. Make sure that the file system on the stick is compatible with the older Windows version - maybe FAT32 or the like. You may need a smaller/older stick like 32 GB or the like.

Both the USB driver and Nord Electro Tool are for 32bit Windows OS only.

That is a good alternative, I use it for older keyboards editors/updaters..

NSM is now 64 bit, older 32 bit versions may be found but anyway NE2 is not supported by NSM, you can only use the Nord Electro Tool that FZiegler mentioned and linked above.
