    cannot see Windows 8.1 Preview in Windows store?

    Hi, I am using Windows 8 on my computer that I have upgraded from Windows 7 around 3 months ago. Now with the release of Windows 8.1 Preview, I want to install it on my pc as well. But when I am going to the Windows Store page, then I am not able to see Windows 8.1 Preview in it? How can I upgrade to the new version of Windows 8.1? Any help would be appreciated.

    Windows 8.1 preview wont appear in Windows Store incase you are running Windows 8 Enterprise edition of the OS. Also note that if you are running Windows 8 pro that is activated with the help of a Volume License key then you wont see the preview version of Windows 8.1 as well. There are also total 13 base language supported for this build, and if you have any other language base in your computer then also you wont see Windows 8.1. However, you can directly install it by grabbing the iso file from here -

    Well, did you try to reset the Microsoft Store Cache and checked if that works? For doing the same you need to press Windows Key+Q button on the keyboard. After that in the Search Box you need to type WSReset.exe and then press Enter key on the keyboard. With this method you will reset the cache of your store and after that try to download the iso file of Windows 8.1 Preview and then install it on your pc.

    Well, what you need to do is, first go to this link and then have to download the an updated called "Windows8-RT-KB2849636-x64" for 64 bit or "Windows8-RT-KB2849636-x32" for 32 bit system and then install it and restart your computer. After that when your pc boots to the desktop, simply go to the stoe and then check whether the update is available over there or not.
