  • If you're running Windows 8 then there isn't a download available for IE11, it's only available for Windows 7 as a download, and it comes as part of 8.1. Not sure why it hasn't been released for Windows 8 (other than I guess MS wanting people to upgrade) but it hasn't.

    In terms of upgrading from 8 to 8.1, you should be able to upgrade using the Store. Note, you need to ensure your machine is up to date on the current Windows Update patches, as there's at least one that without it you won't be able to install the current 8.1 upgrade. Specifically, 8.11 requires a particular update to be installed, and now that 8.11 is automatically installed when you update from 8 to 8.1 that process won't work without it.

  • Hi,

    Besides that, you should note that if your Windows 8 installed by an organization or a program that uses Volume Licensing. Talk to your system admin, or the administrator of the program that was used to install Windows 8. If you’re the administrator, you can find more info and links to Windows 8.1 ISOs in the Windows 8.1 Enterprise Evaluation.
