Windows 8.1 update failing (4/8 big one)

Well, on my laptop it's failing. On reboot it's trying to uninstall but taking a really long time. Hope it comes back. Anyone else having it just not even installing at all? The rollback took nearly 45 minutes.

Not had any problems here, I've just done it, well the usual updates first, all 8 of them 2 of which were for Office 2007. Then the big one done on its own.
All downloaded and installed without problems and looking at the Update History they all succeeded.

Do you have any other problems with this machine, have you been able to install updates before ?

Yeah, it's gone from 8.0 to 8.1 and now trying this update. I'm on it now, it recovered itself back to 8.1 I'm running an sfc/scannow and will only try to do the main update this time.

Glad to hear you managed to get the install fixed, it's always a good idea that if you have problems with updates try to install them one at a time, you'll usually then find the one that causes any problems and sort out a fix. :)
