    KB2975719 Appearing as Optional Update Sept 2


    This update is now appearing as optional update available on my pc's. Any problems with this? I am running scared about installing "optional" updates since the last two month's fiascos. KB2975719 is correct number - sorry for mispost originally . For now, I have just "hidden" this update - afraid to try to install it.....lol. Microsoft has gone completely berserk with Windows Updates, it seems.

    August 2014 update rollup for Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2 Note it says This update is released on September 2, 2014.

    I guess it's a fix for the original version from last month's bug. That shows up today as an update for me also, even though I still have that KB installed. I wonder if the original (buggy?) version needs to be uninstalled first?

    I never was able to get it installed last go-round. So, I hid it then - am hiding it again - there's really nothing in the details that I need or want.

    The patch fixes more than one bug. I would install it.(one of them even was concerning wifi)

    That pertains to Miracast - which I don't have and didn't even know what it is - had to Google it. Think I'll still pass on installing the Update.

    Sounds good, did you still have the original KB2975719 installed when you installed today's version?
