    Windows 8.1 Update for Windows (KB2919355) failure.


    I followed the directions at http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42335

    After I launch Windows8.1-KB2919355-x64.msu the updater fails to install it.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Certain updates have to happen before you can run this update, which I believe to update from 8.1 to 8.1.1.
    Try:
    1. Run: chkdsk c: /r =====> This might take a while to complete.
    2. dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    3. sfc /scannow
    4. Delete everything under: C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download
    5. run Windows Updates and let it install by itself instead of installing it manually.
