Microsoft about to fix flaw

Written by Nick Farrell

Will allow the installation of Windows 8.1 RT

Software geniuses at Microsoft are about to release a patch which fixes a flaw that prevented some users upgrading to Windows 8.1. When Redmond announced the availability of Windows 8.1, users of Windows 8 from around the world rushed to download it and most had no problems. However some users were unable to do so, particularly those who use Windows 8 RT.

Microsoft now says it has a fix for the problem. Well we say fix, according to Microsoft it is actually a “pilot programme.” It is not widely available yet but you can download it via the manual link below. Microsoft said that the pilot program is an example of ways we're experimenting to help ensure more of our customers benefit from a continuously improving Windows experience.

The pilot programme works in a similar way to the Windows 8.1 Update process and will automatically update consumer Windows 8 and Windows RT machines for free to Windows 8.1 Update and Windows RT 8.1 Update in select markets.

Before you try to download any of the new bits for this workaround, make sure you have update 2871389 installed. Then you go here. So far the normal version of Windows 8 has still not got its patch posted.
