Windows 8.1 update 1 ESCROW build MSU leaked

I previously said that the final build of Windows 8.1 update 1 has been compiled as a MSU file and now it's time for the leaks to come in. Yeah ! The Escrow build of Windows 8.1 update 1 is out in the web in the MSU format. Both 32-bit and 64-bit variants are available for download. 

I will release the screenshots as soon as I get it working. Windows 8.1 update 1 is set to be released in April via the Windows update and the escrow build might still contain some bugs as it is not a RTM build which will be released to soon to OEM partners.

You need to have all the Roll-ups of Windows 8.1 RTM before you can install this update. So make sure that you have these updates installed,
• Rollup A (KB2883200)
• Rollup B (KB2884846)
• November Rollup (KB2887595)
• December Rollup (KB2903939)
• January Rollup (KB2911106)

  1. During Windows 8.1 release, was an MSU file released for updating Windows 8 Enterprise to Windows 8.1 Enterprise OR there was no other way except a fresh installation?
