    Ref my original post about the Logitech updater error after upgrading to 8.1.

    I had a message that phoneman wanted to know what version of Logitech Setpoint that I had. I don't know, as I also uninstalled it. I'm going to install the latest version on this system as I installed the latest version on my other system and it has no problems (see below).

    UPDATE on my second 8.1 system. It had the exact same problem after upgrading to 8.1. I don't know what version of Logitech Setpoint I had on that system but I did a manual update and that has taken care of the problem.

    It didn't give me the option to create iso. Might be iso files will not be available for the upgrade. TechNet and MSDN have the Enterprise and VL.

    If it doesn't appear for regular folk, the 8.1 rtm plus the 3 G.A. rollup updates are the same thing.

    Or, if you are quick you can grab the installation files downloaded fromm the store before they disappear, they look like this:

    Inside the $windows~bt directory are these fellas

    Can make an iso from that easily. EDIT - not so easily after all. Even if you manage that - it will only accept 8.1 keys - not 8.0 keys. You might be able to put the install.esd in the sources folder of 8.1RTM iso. Haven't tried it yet. Not something the average user will want to endure.

    That's nice to see this again, I did that with the Preview a while ago.
    I could't get it to boot with those files but I didn't paid too much attention on possible solutions... it was already installed.

    Would be nice to be able to make a bootable ISO out of that instead of downloading again for a clean install.

    Make yourself a big pot of coffee because you'll have time to drink it all. It took about 1 1/2 hours for it to download and install completely.

    Final Update. I manually downloaded and installed Setpoint 6.61 on my Win 8.1 system that originally had the problem and it has solved the problem.

    For anyone that gets the error problem, download and install the latest version and see if that fixes it as it did for me.

    I upgraded W8 PRO to 8.1 this afternoon and so far it works ok. A second machine W8 PRO + WMC is in the process of downloading at present. A third pc will get the upgrade tomorrow. They are all desktop 64 bit machines. I hope there will soon be an ISO to make a proper reinstallation DVD.

    Well, my download got to about 50% in 30 minutes, but it's been stuck there for over 1.5 hours. This is frustrating.

    @SURGI,

    It may have finished the main d/l. It then prepares for an age, downloading a ton of updates - this is what mine are like:

    You guys are all very fast. My upload is now at 20% - after 2 hours. And it is 9PM. I'll probably have to let it run all night.
