Windows 8.1 Update 1 Back on Windows Update Servers (Download Now!)

16

A few weeks back we reported of the RTM version of Windows 8.1 Update 1 leaking via Microsoft.  Microsoft quickly pulled the links down, but as we are now much closer to the official release date, it appears they are back online.

Windows 8.1 x86

The Updates must be installed in the following order:

  1. KB2919442  (you may already have this installed).
  2. KB2919355
  3. KB2932046
  4. KB2937592
  5. KB2938439
  6. KB2939087

These are the exact same update that were available on the servers a few weeks back.  If were lucky enough to already install them, no need to do it again.

    Link?

    I don’t see this on Windows Update or MSDN…

      If you run windows update you will not see this. There was a registry hack that would let you get the updates through windows updates, but it is not working anymore. The updates are simply sitting on the server. You have to download them manually for now to install.

      Update 1 will appear on MSDN when the update is offically released.

      This is sort of a leak similar to the one a few weeks back.

    Smooth install. But not many news.

  • Vincent Haakmat

    Do you know if these are updated (RTM) files or the same old ones?

    • http://twitter.com/surilamin surilamin

      These are the same exact files that were made available earlier. That being said these are the RTM files. There will be additional QFEs (quick engineering fixes) that will be coming later.

    yeah because you needed Microsoft servers to update to update 1….

    6 updates again? ehmm wzor leaked 4. and those were the only needed for the update. it seems some people keep making things up and adding 2 updates that will be pretty much useless or they are not even good for being installed

  • gkcarpenter

    OK is anyone else having install issues? I have run this twice and the install says it is installing the update but it has been doing that for two hours.

    • http://twitter.com/surilamin surilamin

      Did you restart after each induvidual update?

      • gkcarpenter

        I am still waiting for the first to install, after almost an hour it now shows status of the install so we chall see

  • Vincent Haakmat

    I thought.. I’m feeling lucky today, so I downloaded and just finished installing them.. And yes, you will reboot 5 times.. But what the heck, I had 1 hour lunch break to burn, more than enough time to do the download and install. It does feel snappier right away, especially explorer. As a 99% desktop user, this is a heaven sent. I don’t care what others say, but it strikes a very good balance between the 2 environments. And most importantly my mouse isn’t angry anymore :D

      I agreed with you. This update, in my opinion has been one of most important missing bridge since windows 8 was introduced.

  • Hubert Lam

    Gone again :(

  • Nham Thien Duong

    Reckon I’ll just wait for the official release and install this in a virtual P.C. then.

    Well, it seems that MS has already taken it down. I should have downloaded it, when I first read this article.
