    Dear FaiKee,

    In your third paragraph, first line, I think it should be 17031+rollup instead of 17013+rollup :D

    Regards,

    Manu

    KB2919355 probably will not change from .17031, but yes, there could be an additional update/rollup added to the group at release date. All they'd need is an update with a newer ntoskrnl.exe to change the Windows build # from .17031 to a later #.

    Somebody here should set up a betting pool so we can all wager on what we think will happen. :D

    KB2941455 is not a general release, you are required to enter agreement with MS and get it thru email apply, it's for OEM test because it requires KB2919355 dependency, and MS assumes only the OEM's has 2919355, and ATM the leaked version is the only version available to test 2941455.

    Therefore, KB2941455 could change, and so is its dependency.

    No, I don't bet, I always loss, gave up long time ago. :D

    RTM? you have seen it, or probably using it. When I said "extreme case", that would be a very nasty show-stopper in 17031, it most probably won't happen.

    Why people don't read posts and make proper appropriate conclusions from? I already debunked everything on this subject in the hotfix repository thread yesterday.

    I don't know if will be ISO to this Spring update because :
    1) This update doesn't have new kernel like win8.1, So this is not new OS.
    2) The Language packs are in the update files.

    Looking at the size of the update, I'm sure VL ISOS will be updated. Now Retail ISOS is a different story.. But maybe. Who knows.:)

    Hello all, I updated my Windows 2 go USB drive with Update 1, everything went perfect. Now when I go for updates to the store apps, it tells me for, for ALL apps, error 0x8020002b. Does anyone know what this error code means for Windows Store Apps when trying to update them?

    The same what it means for Windows Update, because Store uses Windows Update as backend.

    Well WU worked fine, its the store that for some reason gives me this error. I also tried to download an app and it gives me the same error. Do you or anyone know the address that the store connects to? Wondering as here at work they have blocked some sites and URL's and was wondering if the stores addres/URL is blocked. Can anyone help me out with this?

    Enterprise customers are main income source to M$ when we talk about OS business, so they want these customers to be happy. Moreover, it is real pain in the a** when you need to update lets say 500 PCs, and it's not so hard if you need to update 1 or 2. So for this reason I think it will be same story as it was with GA update - only VL will be updated for easier deployment in large organisations.

    Hi there!

    I have the feature pack installed as indicated here.

    After installing the update kb2919355-x64.msu windows8.1-I start the computer and then it's over, the system simply will not boot. After a long search I came out that it is 120% the driver sptd.sys from Alcohol. If I switch to off, then it goes.

    Who knows the problem and who knows a solution to this?

    @ Tito

    Yes I have installed the most current driver.

    I want to install the following updates:

    01 windows8.1-kb2919442-x64.msu
    02 windows8.1-kb2939087-x64.msu
    03 windows8.1-kb2919355-x64.msu
    04 windows8.1-kb2932046-x64.msu
    05 windows8.1-kb2938439-x64.msu
    06 windows8.1-kb2937592-x64.msu

    How and when kb2919355 is after the end of the installation and the computer goes into an infinite loop and boats constantly new in the repair mode.

    Mh nobody an idea?

    Some guys here on MDL reported various issues with this update so in my opinion it would be better to wait while M$ push this updates through WU.
