Checking for Windows 8.1 Update 1? RRS feed

  • Question

  • There is a bug in windows 8.1 that substantially affects the performance of my application. I have just discovered it is fixed in windows 8.1 update one, so in that situation I can change my behaviour inside the application. How can I tell if I am running on windows 8.1 update one?

  • I don't see any API's to determine that.  Can you not time the operation and if it exceeds a certain level, then do something different?

  • Sadly not.  Under Windows 8.1 if I display any images in my application then it constantly repaints, so the performance is unacceptable.  So I don't display images by default.

    This has been fixed in Windows 8.1 update 1, so I can now display images.  But I can't afford to do it under Windows 8.1, because the performance is so bad it will turn users off the application.
