    I had an official version of Windows 8 on my system and updated to the 8.1 preview.
    Now that the 8.1 update is out, i cannot see it in my Store app.
    I have used KMS to active Office 13, could this be the reason why?

    [FONT=WOL_Reg]You can download the update for free from the Windows Store. You'll be able to keep your personal files, but you'll need to reinstall your apps. Make sure you have any original installation media that might be required for apps that were not installed from the Windows Store.[/FONT]
    [FONT=WOL_Reg]
    • On the Start screen, tap or click [FONT=WOL_Bold]Store[/FONT] to open the Windows Store. Doing this first will make it so that you can see the progress of the installation once it starts.
    • After opening the Store, return to this page.
    • Click to download Windows 8.1 from the Windows Store.

    Yeah I reckon I'll have a go at that.
    I could restore my computer to Win8 using the restore tool and upgrade to Win8.1 from there.
    Just go balls out and do a totally clean install.
