Users of Windows 8.1 must install the latest update to receive future automatic updates from Microsoft

Users of Windows 8.1 must install the latest update to ensure future updates from Microsoft are installed automatically. Consumer users of Windows 8.1 will have until May 13 to perform the update, while enterprise users will have until August. For further information about the Windows 8.1 Update, refer to the "Install the latest Windows 8.1 Update"SLN293801_en_US__1iC_External_Link_BD_v1 article from Microsoft.

NOTE: If your computer is set to update automatically, then make sure you don't interrupt the update process or delete the update once it is installed. This will prevent your system from receiving future bug fixes, security updates, and new features to the Windows operating system. If you uninstall the update on a new computer after signing in with a Microsoft account, OneDrive might not work as expected.

How to install the latest Windows 8.1 Update

The Windows 8.1 Update should download and install automatically if your computer is set to receive automatic updates. To manually install the update, download Windows 8.1 Update (KB2919355)SLN293801_en_US__1iC_External_Link_BD_v1 from Microsoft and follow the "Install Instructions" to ensure proper installation.
