    No dice... this blows.
    I uninstalled and reinstalled the update and everything goes fine except when I go to the store there's nothing there for 8.1
    No luck with the search either. Thanks though. Any other ideas?
    Is there not a banner across your Start Screen questioning whether to update after reboot? Please see post #15 here: https://www.eightforums.com/tutorials...d-install.html
    Thank you for the help. The update was never available when I clicked on store.. I went to the MS forum and millions of others were experiencing the same problem. Go figure lol
    Thanks again.

    Upgrading from Windows 8.1 Preview to RTM will remove all installed apps

    At the end of the day I just disabled the Classic Shell start button. Now when I click on the start button it shows the Windows start screen and when I use the Windows key I get Classic Shell. For now this works for me because I usually use the Windows button to get the start menu.

    If anyone else has a better solution, please let me know.

    Thanks all!"

    We shall see how long it takes for them to get around MS on this one. I have a feeling though that they will get it working and then MS will kill it again with the RTM....

    Geeve
    I installed the Classic. I found no difference from the installation in Windows 8. The customisation is as was.

    I could see that the new Windows 8.1 button lurked underneath, but it made no difference to the operation of the Classic button.

    Modernmix also working 100%

    There seems to be a bit of confusion here as I couldn't find it at the store either at first. Anyway it seems you have to install this first Windows 8.1 Preview - Microsoft Windows, let it do it's thing. Then, when Windows re-boots, it'll tell you to go to the store and download the update. Kind of weird, but that's how I got it. It's also mentioned in Brinks tutorial under method one...

    Great info! Thanks! I am not going to mess with with 8.1 till RTM, I really don't want to reinstall all my stuff again just to play with it.

    Strange.

    the fake 8.1 start button goes over the top of classic shell orb for me. Might be because I use winaero skin for classic shell.

    I haven't got round to fixing the post 8.1 update BSOD yet.

    Might have a go a t fixing the BSOD now.

    I noticed the fake start button can invoke a number of completely different menus - no consistency there. The power user menu ( plain grey thing ), the kiddie squares ( start screen or all apps ), or the navigation menu. Bit of a mess.

    I only had a quick look due to bsod, but it is not encouraging so far. I don't think anyone looking for a desktop os will be gagging to buy this thing.
