    Windows 8.1


    Just found this I have 16.4.3505.0912 so to update I have to manually download and reinstall. There is no check for updates button or anything to even tell you there is a new version out?

    Thanks

    Hello Harmik,

    You could download the small wlsetup-web.exe (1.18MB) file from the homepage link, then run it to update all your installed Windows Essentials programs to the latest version.

    Thanks for the reply I will give it a go, so nothing to really tell you that there has been an update. Although I don't think Microsoft are really developing this any more anyway. I might have to get the full version of outlook as I don't think the Modern UI version is good enough yet even in 8.1.

    Hi there
    Will this work on W2012 server - currently there's no built in AV system for it yet - I'm thinking of downloading and playing around with the TechNet version -- I've got an Old W2003 Server which has (and is still doing) sterling service but it's about time to put this one to bed and get something newer.

    Fortunately these servers etc are still on TechNet - while the subscriptions are still active.

    Cheers

    Hello Jimbo,

    Yep, it sure will.

    Realizing that Windows Essentials 2012 was designed with Windows 8 in mind, I will ask anyway ........ does it work on 8.1? or should I wait to download it.
