Important: Please do not upgrade your current Windows 8 installation to Windows 8.1 Preview, as you will need to reinstall all installed desktop applications and programs when you upgrade from the preview version to Windows 8.1 Final (RTM). Instead, dual-boot Windows 8.1 Preview with Windows 8 or install it on the virtual machine using VMware Player or VirtualBox.
