    Windows 8.1 WEI missing ???


    Hi there
    Is it something wrong with my install (I'm running on a VM with VMware) because I can't see anywhere how to run the WEI. I installed W8.1 from the ISO downloaded from TechNet.

    Has this been removed and if so is there another equivalent so one can do comparison tests with performance between W7 / W8 / W8.1

    Cheers

    It's still there (well sorta there):

    Press the Windows + R and type "winsat formal ." (without quotes; yes, include the period before the cr)
    Go to: C:\Windows\Performance\WinSAT\DataStore and click the formal assessment XML file to view your scores.

    Cheers

    Hi there
    Thanks guys.

    The documentation (??) seems rather sparse on what's included, what's changed and what's been omitted in W8.1.

    Cheers
