    Many thanks, this makes life much easier. Trying all these OS' on my desktop to find one that actually works with my software. This is the easiest tool I've used in a while.

    Hello.

    I am specifically looking for Windows 8.1 Update 1 (9600.17050.winblue_refresh.140317-1640 / IR3).
    I have tried the ESD links on page 1, comment 1, but they're all dead.

    Does anybody have alternative (alive) links?

    Thanks in advance.

    No
    only professionalwmc and coresinglelanguage links work

    you can use coresinglelanguage esd and upgrade to core or pro (if your language is supported)

    Thanks for the answer.

    If you don't mind me asking, how is the upgrade done? Through the OS itself, or through a converter script (offline image)?

    I currently have the Professional WMC version btw.

    you can do the upgrade in both ways, either online on the os or offline.
    if you choose to do it offline, you wil need to extract install.wim then use command lines to convert it to either home or pro assuming that you can upgrade directly from singlelanguage to pro.
    which edition do you want to upgrade from single language ? home or pro ?

    Do you have a legit key for Pro? If no, why not just install Pro-WMC?

    i think i saw somewhere in the net a script which is capable of doing the mounting, conversion and unmounting automatically but i can't manage to find it.
    Or you can choose to do the steps manually but it will take some extra work.

    first you need to extract the install.wim from the iso, you can do that with PowerIso for example.

    Then you wil need to mount the iso by typing this command line in admin mode :

    Code:
    Dism /Mount-Image /ImageFile:X:\Install.wim /index:1 /MountDir:X:\mount 
    then you will need to convert the file install.wim from CoreSingleLanguage to Professional :

    Code:
    Dism /Image:X:\mount /Set-Edition:Professional
    then once the conversion has been done, you will have to unmount the image :

    Code:
    Dism /Unmount-Image /MountDir:X:\mount /commit
