Vaio Update for Windows 8.1

Hi Sony Support,

 

Quick question .. when will you release Vaio Update that can be installed directly into Windows 8.1 instead of going through the Windows 8 first then upgrade to Windows 8.1 route that is published on your support site?

 

If I have a clean Windos 8.1 installed, when can I get Vaio Update directly from Sony for my Vaio Tap 11?

 

Model: SVT11215CXB

 

Thanks ..

Hi dreamworks,

 

Have you tried to install the VAIO Update Software version 6.2.0.14170 first and then install the VAIO Update Software version 6.3.1.10120?

Re: Vaio Update for Windows 8.1

Yes.

I have installed VAIO Update 6.2.0.14170 successfully. After restart I proceed to install VAO Update 6.3.1.10120 but there is an error as below.

 

"The installation failed because detailed information for your VAIO could not be acquired."

 

This is the reason why I asked if Sony plans to release a VAIO Update that can be installed onto Windows 8.1 machines directly.

 

Thanks .. Dennis
