    ......since the DP will auto update to the CP.

    Hi there
    Good
    I was just about finished with it since I've got a lot of stuff to do and didn't want to put any more effort into a product expiring in 2 or 3 weeks or so.

    Now with another YEAR it's fine to go again.

    My update worked fine ON TWO machine. Re-boot twice for some reason but it worked.

    Incidentally ensure the Date / Time in the BIOS is correct BEFORE applying the update. Check this at BOOT time with your BIOS screen. Then ensure also that the Windows date / time (after boot) agrees with the BOOT or at least consistent with the regional options in Control Panel.

    Cheers

    hi guys,


    you loose me here, for me it says "expires 16/01/2013". I was under the impression that everyone using Win 8 Dev Preview would let MS install the necessary update's automatically....

    So there is no need to install the patch unless like Abhiji who needs help

    Acer i am on Win 8 64 bit also.

    That's WRONG!! that date is COMING this March, you should have a date of 2013, not 2012!
