    Question about KB2975719


    Hey all,

    Got a short question regarding KB2975719 which seems to be a Windows 8.1 Update 2 rollup.
    I read that there was a problem with August's KB2975719 and that Microsoft released a revised version of KB2975719 on the 2nd of September. I installed both versions successfully as shown in the Update History of Windows Update (see first attachment).

    However, when I go to Programs in Control Panel to view my installed updates, I can only see that August's version of KB2975719 is installed (see 2nd attachment).
    There is no KB2975719 that is installed in September. Seeing as the revised version of September fixes problems of August's version, I was kind of concerned why it's not viewed on the installed updates list.

    Is this normal?

    I have only the September 10 installation on my Win8.1 so I'd wonder if the update failed to remove the older version/s.
    This page gives instructions, make sure you have the other required updates installed:
    Download Update for Windows 8.1 for x64-based Systems (KB2975719) from Official Microsoft Download Center
    These KB's must be installed in the following order: 2993651, 2975719, 2993100, 2979582, 2990532, 2995004

    I already have all the updates installed that should be installed after 2975719 as you mentioned. It would be quite a hassle to uninstall all of them first which could lead to problems/issues as well. The weird thing is that Windows Update is not recommending me any later 2975719 versions of the update what makes it seem that they're already installed (according to the Update History).

    I do remember though that when I got the 2993651 update, there was a 2.8 mb large 2975719 update next to it that was released on 9-9-14. However, after only installing the 2993651 (only selected that one first to install), that version of 2975719 was gone from Windows Update and didn't come back ever since.

    Did you install August's 2975719 before installing the one of September the 10th?

    Confusing, is there any other way to check what version of the update is installed?

    Anyone else having the same issue here?
