This is strange I am also using windows 8 and these commands works.
These commands are not available in Win 8.0
Its windows 8, pro or enterprise ?

To follow "CompCav's" instructions in previous post, I think I have to have the Product Key for the Win 8 installed software on this laptop and I don't have a clue on how to extract it.

2. Run the program. When it displays the results in your default web browser, scroll down until you see your Windows 8 product key like below.

The Belarc Advisor program worked just fine to identify my product key, BUT this OEM product key will not work for the retail version of win 8 on the CNET web link you advised previously. Any other suggestions?

1) Uninstall KB2871389 and reboot.
2) Download the KB2871389 update from Microsoft --> Here
3) Install the KB2871389 update manually and reboot.
4) You should now (hopefully) see the 8.1 upgrade in the Windows Store and be able to download it.

I contacted Dell Support chat line and they did a remote access to my computer and did a reset of my "Store" tile. After that they were able to start the download of win 8.1 which is still downloading at this time. Hopefully will complete within the next two hours and I'll have win 8.1.
Will let you know the results.

Now running Win 8.1 but lost my address book for OUTLOOK. Outlook was installed from Microsoft 2000 SR-1 disk and now when I open Outlook it can't find the WAB DLL file for address book. Get an error message when I try to run import/export in Outlook. Any ideas?
