  • Hi bogdangm,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    Refer to the error message ‘The update is not applicable to your computer.’, please have a look at this "The update is not applicable to your computer" error when you install Windows updates and there are some common reasons that may be caused this issue as below:

    1. Update is superseded

    2. Update is already installed

    3. Wrong update for architecture

    4. Missing prerequisite update

    Please follow the above condition to troubleshot this issue, especially this one: make sure that you have the prerequisite updates installed.

    Go to the Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB) of KB2919355 and we can find this:

    Prerequisites: To apply this update, you must have the following update installed on
    Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, or Windows Server 2012 R2

    2919442 A servicing stack update is available for Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2: March 2014

    It looks like you need to check if the prerequisite update is already installed or not, if not, please download it and install. After that, you can install the update KB2919355 again.

    Best regards,

    Which architecture is your Windows 8.1, 32-bit(x86) or 64-bit(x64)?
    and which is your Windows 8.1 "Update" or before "Update"?

    In Microsoft Update Catalog, there exist a several kind of "KB2919355". 
    You should download an appropriate "KB2919355".
