    Windows 8 Pro


    using windows 8 and the internet explorer app is a nightmare.
    I have been searching for the link to download 8.1 pro preview and cannot find it.
    yesterday I started a download in fact 3 of them at the same time I guess before I found the
    window that showed the progress of them. I panicked and shut the system down because I did not know
    what would happen. I found this link in one of Brink's postings but now am lost.
    can some one help me find a simple link to the PRO version? I don't think anything else will do.
    I have a license copy of 8 Pro and would like to install the preview ISO version if I can find it.
    Thank You.

    I am still trying to download from the link you gave me.
    is there anyplace to see what is going on?
    it says to go on doing what you want and you will be notified when and what to do next.
    tried yesterday afternoon for over 4 hours and now re started this morning.
    thank you

    Sorry to jump in here, but Chisolm, were you using the IE Tile App or the regular Desktop IE10? I've noticed that the Tile app handles stuff like downloads differently than the full desktop version. Is that what you were using?

    I believe I was using the desktop app. I was confused trying to learn the IE tile app in the start area.
    since then I have done a complete Clean Install using the Windows 8 upgrade set of DVD's that I purchased.
    Now back to the windows 8. will wait until the final release is out. thank you for the question.
