    I'm done with Windows 8


    I jut reboot my PC from an update and I lost completely my setting of my hyper-v virtual network. This is too much, I can't trust this beta OS anymore .

    Well, they are already sending out these giant updates - kind of like service packs.

    You are not the only one who has had problems with updates.

    Maybe they should have completed it before release.

    They were rushing to get it out by the holiday season, I expect.

    Ok.. Thing is though, this is pretty common with Virtual Machine software. Every time I've updated VMware I've lost my virtual network settings as well.

    I use it since 2 weeks or so.
    Yes on some portions it really looks like beta.

    Big updates? Then there are some serious issues...

    Over half a gig already.That is big in such a short time.

    They rushed it out. It wasn't ready.

    I see why - they wanted to catch the Xmas buyers. Couldn't wait another 12 mths.

    Well, the Virtual Switch are still there in hyper-v Virtual Switch Manager and work fines , it's in the host network adapter setting , you don't see them , this is a bug, probably I have to remove them from the Virtual Manager and re create them again. This is obviously something rush bad and not really try in a lab.
    Look you see my bluetooth, my 3 physicals nics and no virtual one

    That's misleading. The reason it's been so big is that they have released cumulative updates, which means the new update includes all the previous ones. So if you just count the size, you're counting many updates several times.

    Also, the update sizes include multiple languages, which again means the size is 6-10x larger because updates are being counted multiple times.

    There is, however, one large update.. and it doesn't have any bug fixes whatsoever. The problem was that a certificate they used to sign many of the DLL's was set to expire pre-maturely, so the update is just the same files signed with a new cert.

    If you discount the cert update (since there are no code changes), and cancel out all the duplicates, the updates available are quite small, probably about 50MB or so.

    That is just selection of what I have had so far - it is still offering another 77mb.

    I don't claim to be a maths genius - but I think that is a teeny eeny weeny bit more than 50mb.

    Incidentally, all ... since we're talking about the latest updates. You might find that KB2770917 fails to install. When the system is going through restart it will fail at 15%.

    To ensure this update installs first stop the Nalperion Licensing Service running in your machine before you apply this update. That particular service is set to automatically start with the system so you won't have to worry about restarting it, your system restart will take care of that.
