Anyone notice under PC Settings Update it now tells you the most recent check date and time and the time the most recent updates were installed?

I did, as noted earlier in the topic. There are also some new checkboxes in Touchpad and Mouse settings, but we knew that already.

Nope :(

@warwagon: Usually non-critical updates are marked as option for a few weeks before they're set to automatic.

 

Correct, but they have to be set as automatic to get automatically installed. If set as optional it does not automatically get installed.

You know, you could have read the KB article on what changed :)

 

http://support.micro....com/kb/2975719

 

It lists the "improvements" (ie: new functionality)... as well as all the other KB articles that this rollup fixes (several, including one where application updates leave an empty icon on the taskbar).

Fun.

I don't even have Office updates.

 

Then again, I'm running an Alienware that's not compatible with Windows 8 for reasons unknown because Dell only says that it won't work, but not WHY.

Did you actually have problems installing/running Windows 8 or are you just going by what Dell tells you?

I have issues with installing.  After the first restart after it installs, it freezes, then rolls back to 7.  If I pull my HDD and install it from a different computer and put the HDD back, it works but I can't let it automatically restart or it'll freeze.

yeah and then i went into office itself and told it to check for updates and it told me that there arent any updates available. When I get home i am going to try it again and see if there is something going on locally at home.

Is that the Click-to-Run version? If so, it is updated automagically.

No it sa full copy of Microsoft Office 2013 Professional Plus Edition (bought via the Microsoft Home use Program through work) There is a manual update checker if you go to account on any of the apps. however, generally it does get its updates through Windows update. I am not certain why it did not pick any up this time.

 

My work PC (Windows 7 Pro x64) Running the same version of office (only it is a Volume License Copy) has 15 updates though.

My Visio copy (through Dreamspark) updated properly through WU, but now I see that the c-t-r version of Home and Student 2013 started downloading updates when I checked for them through Word. Weird stuff, previous to this month it would usually update itself automatically without even bothering with WU.
