In Win8.1 Preview, it doesn't show the WEI(Windows Experience Index) in the "This PC-Properties" windows, but actually the function is still there - maybe MS guys plan to show it in a metro style but not ready yet? I don't know. But you could still get the WEI scores.


Open cmd(or powershell) in admin.,, enter WinSAT /? - and it shows the cmd description and switches.




Enter WinSAT prepop ; then windows will start to evaluate, it should take around 2~3 mins..


Then open explorer, move to Windows\Performance\WinSAT\DataStore ; there will be a number of XML files





Open the file:  [to-day's date] Formal.Assessment (Initial).WinSAT ,  and see the WEI scores. :)

Ive only got 8.1 in a VM, however thanks for the guide as i did find it quite useful, a couple of times ive updated some drivers and my WEI has gone up slightly. Also handy comparison between machines,

I guess not too many people are interested in SingleLang. editions, so just post it here, sorry for the off-topic: :)


This was discussed in PCBeta, some guys found that the install.esd downloaded from store contains the SL edition




If you use the setup or DISM in win8.1, then you can actually unpack the esd and pack it into wim, and the embedded SL would be visible in PE, then with the appropriate key(also in setup), you can actually install the SL edition, this is the SL-English posted in another thread:
