    You didn't search very hard. It is everywhere, including on this forum.

    Like you say it's now been pulled (along with three others) so consider yourself lucky some glitch in your system prevented it from being installed.

    It wasn't everywhere, I found only by the long News thread here, but couldn't find any even on MS forums.

    Not lucky if the new one fails too. I'll wait.

    Same as you, still cant download it (error 800F0992 same as OP). What error do you get? Have you perhaps found a fix?

    Windows 8.1, 64 bits

    Same issue: error 800F0922


    Anybody found a fix?

    This is totally ridiculous: when a wanna-be fixed fix needs a re-fix, you don't need to be a genius to realize the fixing work should be restarted from scratch.

    Hello, Microsoft? Could you please make sure qualified staff design a real FIX to what you consider yourself as IMPORTANT?

    I thought Windows 8.1 would be a better choice than Windows 7 to evolve along technology... but I would have done otherwise if it had been called as it is actually: an Alpha Test version... not even beta, as beta versions often have less major problems than this.

    Hi, the same as you I was fighting with this update nearly one week when I decided to upgrade my antyvirus (ESET) to newer version supported in Win8.x and after that the update worked like a charm. First off, I needed to uninstall my older version and as I found out, simple uninstall from Programs and features is not sufficient and I had to use dedicated application provided by ESET running in Safe Mode to uninstall my antyvir totally. Thus, please check if your antyvir is up to date and fully supported in Win 8.1.

    HIH and good luck!
