I missed the deadline

First, I’d like to say that opensuse is my favorite distro. I actually haven’t logged onto this site in quite awhile unfortunatly, but I remember this being a great and helpful community so I’m reaching out hopefully for help w/ a non linux question. I apologize in advance for coming here to ask a Winblow$ question, but have no where else to turn as I cannot find anything on the internet. exactly why I am posting this in general chit chat.

My question(s) is this :

Is there a way to get the Windows 8.1 Update 1 after the deadline ?

I really need my security updates.

Bought a laptop w/ Windows 8. Did the free upgrade to 8.1 quite awhile ago. Was unaware that this was happening until last night. Apparently if you did not downnload/install it by 6/10/14 your S.O.L.

funny thing is I happend to do some updates on 6/10 and looked at them. I didn’t see anything for “8.1 update 1”. I go into PC settings to see my current version of Windows and it says 8.1.

Messing around last night I did get a popup syaing that I wasn’t eligible because my license is good for win 8 and I already updates to8.1 for free (which is weird because this was supposed to be a free update, especially for 8.1 users.

Note that my Win updates are to let me know when they’re available, and to let me choose (which is why I keep close tabs on win updates)

My question is this : Is there anyway to get my hands on this update after the deadline (I checked the microsoft store, googles it, everything) ? - really want/need my security updates.

Also, does anyone know the code for this update. When you look at previous updates there is a code next to them (ex : K625846 etc.)

Thanks in advance !

Hi
It should be available via the ‘App’ store, hit your windows key and
click on the store front and it should show up?

If you check the computer properties as well just to confirm it hasn’t
already updated. Oh and if it’s a dual boot system it creates a new
partition for the update which may/maynot cause issues.

Else call the laptop support folks and ask for a restore dvd with 8.1
on it…

This helped. I don’t really use windows apps so didn’t even think to look in the app store, just looked in the Microsoft store.

Funny enough everywhere I researched said that the OS would read Windows 8.1 Update, as opposed to Windows 8.1. It still reads Windows 8.1.

I’m not sure what happend because micro$oft said that this would be unavailable after 6/10/14, and it appears it installed today 6/13. I also notice that the changes in this update where applied to my system a few months ago, probably April when it first came out. Very odd, that microsoft for ya.

Link that helped me figure this out. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/whats-new

Thanks Malcom for the help as always !

Cheers

I don’t think they ever called it that. It was just a big update. It has popularly been called “update 1” among the technical public, but it just had a KB number to Microsoft.

I might be mistaken here, as I don’t use much Windows. Check the Start page (that “Metro” page with all of the applets listed). If there’s an option to shutdown/reboot/whatever, near the top right of the screen, then I think you have Update 1.

As far as I know, there was no deadline for applying this update. It’s just that you might stop getting other updates until you do. If there is a large update available, that’s probably it.

(And I do wonder about asking for Microsoft advice on a linux forum :stuck_out_tongue: )

Assuming you have pipelight why not just us the pipelight plugin for Unity? http://pipelight.net/cms/plugin-unity-webplayer.html

What repo are you using? And maybe compare it to a wine install and see if it does the same thing?

Hi

The pipelight files are from home:ecsos:pipelight openSUSE_13.1 the rest from the default openSUSE 13.1 oss via my local management system (SUSE Manager 2.1).

I think you are using an old version. The official repo has changed so perhaps that repo has not caught up yet? http://pipelight.net/cms/install/installation-opensuse.html

Yes, that one was better, only 96 packages, unity3d enabled, so will

Hi
Alas, neither the 32 or 64bit unity3d plugin worked with raceview. But
I get the main race audio on this laptop and just run the windows 8
system and listen to the drivers and watch the race :wink:

Thanks both to you and Malcom.

I had the problem using 8.1 in a VM. Now I know. It is not always to clear what version of a OS your are using. Attach a picture of my old workshop PC that have survived several rolling updates of openSUSE. I use to laugh every time I see the boot screen. Mismatching numbers or…
