It’s 8 April here, which means Windows XP dies and we get official links for Windows 8.1 Update 1 that everybody can go ahead and download. The easiest way is just go to Windows Update and search for the latest updates. However, if for a certain reason you’re not getting the latest Windows 8.1 Update, you can go ahead and follow the official links from below to download for your x86, x64 or ARM devices. What you need to remember is that these need to be installed in the right order that we put below.

Download Windows 8.1 update from MSDN

If you can’t wait for April 8, when the official Windows 8.1 update will be available, (as the KB2919355 Windows Update), then you can go ahead and download it from the MSDN website. All Windows version have been updated (not the new Windows IoT one), so just go to this link and choose what is the version that you need. Here are all the versions currently updated and available:

You would think that the Windows 8.1 update was enough to fix the problems and frustrations that Windows 8 was causing for some users, but apparently it isn’t like that. Microsoft is now expected to release yet another update which will ugly be called “Windows 8.1 Update 1” or “Windows 8.1 Spring Update” which is said to bring some really useful features for users. At the beginning of March, some leaks have appeared online and they brought official links to the download files. Also, with some tweaks to the registry, users were able to get the Windows 8.1 update 1. However, if you have missed those tricks, you now have another occasion, as official downloads links for x86, x64 and ARM devices have been made available once more.

Microsoft hasn’t officially confirmed the links yet, obviously, so we don’t know 100% if they are genuine. But since those who have used the registry tweak have reported to get the new features which Microsoft itself has been talking, it makes sense to assume this is the real thing. It might not be the final for, but it’s definitely an almost final build, as March is coming to an end and Microsoft is said to release the Windows 8.1 Spring Update during this April. I download the updates myself and can confirm that Windows 8.1 looks different indeed. So, here are the download links, grab them while they’re hot!

In my case, the kb2919442 update was already there, so this might be the case with you, as well. You will need to download and install them in the exact order as arrange above. The updates will require multiple reboots, so don’t get scary that it will somehow crash or even brick your system, it’s a natural behavior.

Update: and that was it, folks, download links are already down, so I hope you were swift enough to download. We’ve been approached and asked to remove the links, so you can try your luck and search for the specific updates online, maybe somebody has uploaded them to another server. We’ll keep you updated if and when they are made available again.
