    Hello,
    I just installed Windows 8.1 RTM and then activated it using my Windows 8 upgrade key with the slmgr -ipk command. But now I'm facing a few issues which are as follows:

    1) Music and Video App updates are available in the Windows Store but they fail to update every time (Error Code - Video App update error 0x80073cf1 , Music App Update error 0x80246007)

    I've tried resetting windows store cache, troubleshooting Windows update in Action Center, etc., nothing seems to be working. I just wanted to know if the error has anything to do with Windows 8.1 shipping with newer builds of the Music & Video apps, hence the update not applying to them or am I just unlucky)

    2) I am also unable to install .Net Framework 3.5 from the turn windows features on or off section in Program & Features section of the control panel (Error Code 0x800F0906)

    3) Do I need to install AMD Catalyst drivers 13.1 (latest) on Windows 8.1, I have a Radeon HD 4600 series card?

    Please help. Thank you.

    1. Me too, I imagine that it has to do with the server. Considering RTM isn't supposed to be on the streets yet it is not surprising that not all apps will update.

    2.
    Code:
    dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /Source:X:/sources/sxs
    Where X: is the path to the Windows 8.1 install media." From Neowin.

    3. I had to use the graphics driver from Windows update for my Nvidia driver to work and Black Ops 2 to play. Your mileage may vary but I suggest using the vanilla MS drivers first until AMD releases an 8.1 driver. The 8.1 preview driver may or may not work for you.


    EDIT: To clarify, mount your ISO or installation DVD in the drive, note the drive leter and type

    Code:
    dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /Source:X:/sources/sxs
    In an elevated prompt, replace X with the appropriate drive letter. This will install from the media, the appropriate files are not available on the server as of yet.

    Hi Guys,

    1) I was able to solve Issue #1 of Music & Video App not updating by uninstalling both the apps and then re installing from the Windows Store.
    2) Resolved issue #2 by forcing .Netframework 3.5 installation from installation media using this command (thanks Dolorous Edd) - dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /Source:X:/sources/sxs
    3) I an sticking with Windows 8.1 drivers for my Radeon HD 4600 card because i don't play any games at all. Other video performance doesn't seem to be suffering at all.

    Thanks for the responses guys. Truly appreciate it.

    P.S. Now All that I need to make this Windows 8.1 RTM install as my daily driver is to install Microsoft Office 2013 Pro (I have no clue about Microsoft Toolkit and if that is a safe solution). If that doesn't work I will just install my Office 2010 copy with the trilogy 4.2 hack.

    Quite not sure whether he knows what he´s talking about.

    VUP = Version Upgrade Package = Retail Version in the end :D

    You need to add this at the end:-
    Code:
    Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /source:H:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess
    This prevents the OS from contacting WU to get the .NET 3.5 files!

    They don't update because the OS is not released.
    There is a weird problem with Windows Update as well.
    It's literally the only potential bug I've noticed so far.
    It seems as if the first time you check for updates, it just checks forever.
    I had to reboot and retry on both a VM and my main system.

    That being said, it's not officially released. It could be that they're still propagating the files on the update servers and that some of them work while others do not.
    IMO we have no right to complain until it's actually past the General Availability date.

    And yet everybody (even the corporate/business network folks that should know better) is complaining.

    Look at the Windows Server (specifically the Server 2012R2) thread - I pointed out (very nicely, but also very tersely) that the two month lag has a lot to do with all the stuff that they are complaining is missing - back-end stuff.

    I didn't even go into major detail; instead, I gave a mere two examples.

    And I have had exactly ZERO problem accessing - or downloading from - the Windows App Store. I just re-downloaded Bejeweled Live (a trial game from just before the 8.1 Preview), Microsoft Solitaire Collection (a free game from the Windows 8 launch), and added a new game; a "lite" and free version of Halo - Spartan Assault (this is not only new with 8.1, but utterly unannounced). Possibly a country-specific issue?

    in other topic found this,

    if you installed a language pack, uninstall it. Enable .NET framework with DISM. After that, install the language pack again
