Starting May 2014, Windows 8.1 without Update will no longer receive security updates

TechNet blog

Since Microsoft wants to ensure that customers benefit from the best support and servicing experience and to coordinate and simplify servicing across both Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 8.1 RT and Windows 8.1, this update will be considered a new servicing/support baseline. What this means is those users who have elected to install updates manually will have 30 days to install Windows 8.1 Update on Windows 8.1 devices; after this 30-day window - and beginning with the May Patch Tuesday, Windows 8.1 user's devices without the update installed will no longer receive security updates.

This means that Windows 8.1 users - starting patch Tuesday in May 2014 and beyond - will require this update to be installed. If the Windows 8.1 Update is not installed, those newer updates will be considered “not applicable.”

Reading the comments @ the TechNet link above it appears a lot of people are crying about errors they are getting when installing the Win8.1 Spring 2014 Update.

Update:Microsoft gives business users more time to install Windows 8.1 Update

Summary: Microsoft enterprise users now have until August, instead of May, to move to the 'Update' versions of Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Embedded 8.1 in order to continue to receive future fixes and updates.

Did you install the one from Windows update?

The 4 that installed using WU worked fine.
I have a copy of Windows 8 Enterprise that is not updated to 8.1 as the TechNet key wont activate that one I found out (no store upgrade to 8.1 like Pro). Hopefully W8 will still get updates.

The one that I was having trouble with updating, is my Windows 8 Enterprise with Technet key, I actually reinstalled it and activated it again to get it to update.

You were able to use your TechNet Windows 8 key to activate Windows 8.1, or did I misread what you are saying?

Mine didn't work so I had to reinstall W8E again & am stuck using that to get Windows-2-go.

I thought it was Windows 8 Enterprise, but it must be Windows 8.1 Enterprise because I just checked my keys and that is the one I used when I reinstalled and then updated.

Thanks for the update Dan ^*^

I took another look @ my list of keys & noticed that for those apps/OSs I didn't ask for keys they gave me a : "Static Activation Key"
Sadly Windows 8.1 isn't listed since I let my sub expire before it was released.
