    Will there be an upgrade available from the Windows Store for this upgrade path or do MSDN/VL users need to grab ISO's and redo the installations that way? We are still in flux waiting for our purchase to go through for MSDN to renew and get access to 8.1 and I am not sure how long its going to take (another month or so) and I was hoping that the upgrade would work for MSDN/VL Copies.
