    Hi there

    Thanks

    That folder certainly isn't by any means "intuitive" - especially when you see things like "Industry Standard" and Embedded in the title. !!!

    I'm sure I won't be the only one confused as to which file to download (especially when the Windows update ISO I downloaded and used the GET KEYS gave me the key I'd already got.

    Cheers

    I had to think about it for a while to be sure it was the right one. It just says Windows 8.1, I assumed if it wasn't meant for Enterprise it would have said Windows 8.1 Core and Pro or Windows 8.1 Retail or something. I applied the leaked version a while ago without even thinking about it. I'm going to do a clean install in a couple of days.

    Talking about keys, if memory serves me, last install I tried to use a PID.txt file and got some This key not valid for this edition or something message. I had to delete the PID.txt file and do a change key after the install to enter my TechNet key.

    Hi there
    Thanks -- It worked

    I didn't want to go through a whole re-install this time -- I'll do that at some future date. Normally a clean install is the best but I just wanted to try out the update to see if it was worth installing. It took about 15 mins to apply the 6 updates from the file.

    Cheers

    From what I've heard you don't have much of a choice. If you don't apply update 1 you don't get anymore security updates.
