    Win8.1 64 bits Ent- Pro

    59 is just right man, whatcha thinking haha, try and disable your anti virus while updating, also try and remove all thatis connected to your lappie well except for power and mouse .
    Change isnt easy as you know by now , but dont let it defeat you, you are not alone. Did win8 detect your Epson? best bet is to go to epson site and download from there, it should work if not we ll makeit work.
    Good luck
