    I've got a question for the Pro's...

    This is regarding my ASUS Tablet with Windows 8.1 Professional x86 installed (Windows is activated of course).

    The Tablet currently has Windows 10 reserved and after looking at this post, i took a curious look at the KB used to reserve it and noticed that KB2952664 was applied.

    Can anyone let me know as to why Windows Update applied KB2952664 to reserve Windows 10 when that is a Windows 10 Reservation for the Windows 7 x86 systems???

    I am pretty well versed in Computer Hardware and Software (though i am no Master in those fields) and this is kind of a confusing update applied.

    I am all ears LOL!

    Thanks a bunch!

    The reference in that link to my question states "Check Windows Update for an updated version of KB2952664 (Windows 7 SP1) or KB2976978 (Windows 8.x)".

    I have Windows 8.1 and KB2952664 is installed that is for Windows 7.

    I am really stumped why that is???

    WU is not reliable :)

    btw, this update has nothing to do with reservation, it's for compatibilty appraiser
