I can't even install the current patches as I can get a download page for 32 bit Windows 8 patches only...no download pages load for Win 8 64 bit patches.
I don't want to go to OT here, but I'm always looking to help people out.
So, this makes me wonder why the pages won't load.
Here is the page that lists all of the Microsoft patches that were released today.
»technet.microsoft.com/en ··· ms13-may
Actually, if you use this, you can go here each month and get you to the current months list
»technet.microsoft.com/en ··· bulletin
So, if you look at the list of May patches, one of them is MS13-039. It applies to "Windows". To find out specifically what versions of Windows, as well as needed service pack levels, you use this link
»technet.microsoft.com/en ··· ms13-039
By the way, if you change the last part (ms-yy-###) you can actually look at, and get the information for any patch. the 13 of course relates to the last 2 digits of the year (in this case, 2013). 039 tells you that it is the 39th patch that Microsoft has issued so far in the year.
If you click that link, and scroll a bit down, you see the section "Affected and Non-Affected Software", like I have shown in Picture #1.
If you then click the blue link "Windows 8 for 64-bit Systems
(2829254)", it should take you to the download page for that patch, which is
»www.microsoft.com/en-us/ ··· id=38926
See picture #2 for what that looks like.
Clicking the download button, should result in something like what I show in Picture #3.
You can then download and save the file, or just run it. I'm guessing you would probably download them all first (and maybe even archive them for later use).
So, what part of that process fails for you? Or, do you do it different?
