    Windows 8.1 Clean Install


    My computer shows KB2933809 and KB2957390 as needing to be installed. However, when I try to install I get an error message saying that they are not needed. Tired this over and over even with multiple reboots in between.

    Ideas?

    Thanks for 'clearing up the confusion David...
    The reason that Windows Update did not pick up KB2957390 for my system (laptop) is that I do not have Microsoft Internet Information Services installed!

    I do have KB2933809 installed which was picked up by Windows Update after KB2919355 (Windows 8.1 Update file) was installed.

    You are unable to uninstall IIS after you install KB2919355 in Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2

    Consider the following scenario:
    • You have a computer that is running Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2.
    • You have update 2919355 and Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) installed on the computer.
    • You try to uninstall IIS.

    In this scenario, the uninstallation fails. Additionally, IIS is rolled back and may not function correctly.

    This compatibility update is dated April 2014.

    The kinds of problems that are resolved by application compatibility updates

    When you try to install and run certain games or applications in Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, or Windows Server 2012 R2, you may experience one or more of the following symptoms:
    The game, the application, or the driver is installed incorrectly.
    The game, the application, or the driver causes system instability.
    The primary functions of the game, the application, or the firmware do not work correctly.

    Compatibility updates trigger several changes in Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2.
    The following are the most common.

    Hard block
    This prevents an application that is incompatible with Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, or Windows Server 2012 R2 from running on the system.
    Note Microsoft enables Windows to put a hard block on a non-Microsoft application only if the manufacturer is notified.

    Soft block
    This notifies you when a primary function of the application may not work or may cause application instability.

    Driver block
    This may block an existing driver on your computer. When the driver is migrated during the upgrade, an Inbox driver will be installed.
