Cannot Install Windows 8.1 Update 1 (KB2919355)

Few days before Microsoft has released the Windows 8.1 Update 1 for the Windows 8.1 & Windows Server 2012 series of Operating System for both x86 & x64. The Update was not an optional update as per the Microsoft and the update has been made mandatory for all the Windows 8.1 and the Windows Server 2012 R2 Users. So the users need to install this free update to get most of the security patches and fixes. This Update contains more features which was newly added by the Microsoft after the request form the users.


This Windows 8.1 Update 1 was fully optimized for the Windows 8.1 desktop users & for those who are all using the desktops with the Mouse & Keyboard. But after releasing this Windows 8.1 Update 1, while trying to install this update many of the users are getting some problems/issues. At first we all need to know one point that this update cannot be installed in the Pirated copy of the Operating System.

We need a original genuine copy of the operating system, since in the pirated copies most of the files would get corrupted, we cant able to install and make this update to work. I would recommed to buy a genuine version of the Windows 8.1 OS  to use.

The next thing is you need to update your Windows 8.1 Operating System with the latest updates to install this Update. If you didn’t install the latest patches in your system before trying to install this Update, then it cannot be installed because the Windows 8.1 Update 1 requires some minimum patches which should be pre-installed in your System before installing this update.

Some of the pre-required updates includes..

So before trying to update your Windows 8.1 Operating System check for the possibilities and make sure you have the prerequisites and try to install this update. Even if all the prerequisites have been done still you cant able to install this Update then we need to wait for Microsoft till it releases another patch to resolve this issue completely.
