    Windows 8.1 will be getting nearly 30 patches later today


    Microsoft plans to release over 30 non-security patches for various versions of Windows later today, but Windows 8.1 will be the subject of the vast majority of those downloads.

    The company has released summaries of all these optional patches on its support page, and it's clear that most of them are for fixing problems in Windows 8.1, with some for Windows RT 8.1 and a few for Windows 7. Microsoft released a number of security patches for versions of Windows last week as part of "Patch Tuesday".

    So far, Microsoft has not released any specific information on what these patches are supposed to fix, but that should be revealed when they start rolling out via Automatic Update later today.

    Thanks for the "Warning" Shawn.
    I'll make a system image right now then, before it updates later, for just incase there's a hiccup.
    I tell other users to always image before something major, and I do follow my own advice.

Hi. On XP I used to use GnuWin32, you just select .patch file -> Open with -> patch.bat and it does the work, now on Win8 this doesn't do anything, I guess because of admin privileges? So how do I apply patches on Windows 8 Pro x64?
