Windows 8.1 - Update 1 requirements RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Has anyone come across a list of prerequisite updates that Windows 8.1 Update 1 (KB2919355) requires ?  According to the link below, it particularly needs KB2919442, but doing some testing & manual installing, it looks like it needs more updates than just that one.  Currently we only deploy updates that have a severity level (eg. Critical, Important, etc.).  KB2919442 has a severity level of None, so it doesn't get deployed.  Windows 8.1 Update 1 (KB2919355) has a severity level of Critical.

    Thanks

  • Thanks.  The clearcompressionflag.exe file looks interesting.  Has anyone successfully deployed Windows 8.1 Update 1 via SCCM 2012 R2 ?

  • I should re-phrase:  Has anyone successfully deployed Update 1 (for Windows 8.1 clients) via SCCM 2012 R2 ?

    Thanks
