    You can use the Windows 8.1 VL (GA) DVD of your version to update your Windows 8.

    Enterprise and VL editions do not update to 8.1 though the Windows Store. You obtain the install media from the same source you obtained 8. If you are running a legal copy you should have no problem updating to 8.1 with the help of your companies IT department.
